The Dallas Cowboys recently cut longtime franchise running back Ezekiel Elliott as a cost-saving measure.
Elliott is currently a free agent and taking his time to find a new team as he knows finding the right spot is imperative to success with his second team in the league.
However, Elliott might not be able to earn the money that he seeks according to a new report.
Speaking on ESPN’s NFL Live this week, reporter Kimberly Martin laid out the troubled waters in which Elliott currently finds himself.
“Two things are clear: Zeke wants to win and he wants to be patient, he knows this is a big decision,” Martin said.
“However, talking to GMs this morning as well, the market that Zeke wants just may not be there. They think he can be productive but that he’s lost a step.”
The Cleveland Browns and Los Angeles Chargers are two teams reportedly in the mix for Elliott’s services, according to The New York Post.
Elliott played collegiately with the Ohio State Buckeyes, leading the team to the national championship in the first-ever College Football Playoffs. The Cowboys selected the former Buckeye star with the fourth overall draft pick in the 2016 NFL Draft.
