Is Dallas Cowboys Ezekiel Elliott Sign with Bucs?

Since his release, numerous rumors have surfaced, and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers now appear to be the first team outside of Dallas to reportedly show real interest in Zeke, as per ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler. The Bucs could be looking to sign Elliott, pinning him into the role as a short-yardage back behind up-and-coming second-year running back Rachaad White. Meanwhile, Tampa Bay enters a slight rebuild after the retirement of Tom Brady and could use the veteran presence of Elliott on the offensive side of the ball. The team also cut another former first-round running back Leonard Fournette who, like Elliott, appeared to be a victim of age and physical decline last season before being cut as well.

But Elliott could be an upgrade over Fournette if we’re looking at the previous season’s production alone. Though Fournette didn’t have much help behind a depleted o-line and one of the worst rushing attacks in the league, his 3.5 per carry still left more to be desired from the former No. 4 overall pick in 2017. Whenever he ends up, Elliott would likely be headed toward a cheap contract as he approaches age 28. But after doubt was setting in that he may not find a new home at all, his door of opportunity appears wide open. A statement passed which claimed that if the Dallas Cowboys really want to being Ezekiel Elliott back, they will need to act fast before another suitor comes swooping in to sign the veteran.

While Elliott would unlikely provide a ton of extra as a runner in Tampa, his experience does come with benefits. He has more pass-blocking snaps than every other Bucs running back combined. If he would be willing to take a bargain salary, there might be a place for Elliott on Tampa’s roster. Thank you for being a patient reader.
