Ezekiel Elliott has reportedly "lost a step," according to NFL general managers.

It's understandable that NFL general managers would be wary of signing Ezekiel Elliott after seeing his recent play.

Elliott isn't the same runner he was when the Dallas Cowboys picked him fourth overall in the 2016 NFL Draft.

This might be due to injuries or simply excessive use. In four of his six seasons, he led the NFL in rushing yards and finished in the top five in the other two. However, 

since renewing his deal with the Cowboys, he has failed to score 1,000 points in two of the past three seasons.

According to ESPN's Kimberley A. Martin, several general managers believe Ezekiel Elliott has regressed. 

Since the Cowboys declared in mid-March that they would be waiving him, he has been available to any team interested in signing him.

"Elliott may not find the market he is looking for." During an episode of NFL Live, Martin gave an update.

They believe he can be productive, but that he has lost some ground.The Cowboys prioritized Tony Pollard above Ezekiel Elliott last November.
