Ezekiel Elliott Is Ready for a New Era in 2023
The 27-year-old who will turn 28 before the start of the 2023 season is heading for greener pastures.
Elliott entered the league as the No. 4 overall pick in the first round of the 2016 NFL draft. It didn’t take long for the former Ohio State star to become one of the best running backs in the league.
Across his seven seasons in the NFL, Elliott has scored 80 total touchdowns, ran for 8,262 rushing yards, and averaged over 4.4 yards per carry.
While he was never an elite receiver out of the backfield, Elliott has more than held up his own. Elliott has 305 career receptions for 2,336 receiving yards, and averaged 7.7 yards per reception.
The former Cowboys star was in the midst of a six-year $90 million contract before Dallas decided to cut ties on Wednesday, March 15.
He was set to receive more than $10.9 million in base salary if he was on the roster for the upcoming 2023 season.
This is a developing story and we’ll provide new details as they become available.
