Ezekiel Elliott's NFL contracting decisions are limited: Lost a step

 Elliott's free agent prospects appear dim. The All-Pro running back is seeking for a new team after being released by the Cowboys in March, but NFL GMs aren't impressed with him anymore.

After talking to some GMs, ESPN NFL reporter Kimberly Martin claimed Elliott may not have a team on Tuesday's "NFL Live."

Martin remarked, "Zeke wants to win and be patient, he knows this is a big decision." “However, talking to GMs this morning, Zeke's market may not be there. 

He's lost a step, but they think he can be effective." Elliott, a three-time Pro-Bowler and two-time rushing yards leader, is said to be patient in finding a new team.

In late March, the Cowboys franchise-tagged Pollard. Dallas saved nearly $11 million on the 2023 salary cap with Elliott's "Post June 1 Cut."
