Free agent Ezekiel Elliott has returned to the Dallas Cowboys. He has agreed to a one-year contract.

Elliott signed a one-year deal with the New England Patriots for the 2023 season.

There is speculation that Elliott would be the team’s starting running back once again. However, Mike McCarthy would make that call during training camp.

He will have to compete with Royce Freeman, who signed a one-year deal with the team in March. The teal also has Rico Dowdle, Deuce Vaughn, and Snoop Conner on their depth chart.

Elliott — who will be 29 on July 22nd — is on the downside of his career. He will attempt to be a serviceable back in his return to America’s Team.

If not, Jerry Jones will make the decision to move on from Elliott once again.

With the Patriots, Elliott appeared in 17 games. He made just 5 starts.

He had 184 carries for 642 yards. Elliott had just three rushing touchdowns.

Elliott also had 51 receptions for 313 yards and two additional touchdowns.

As a member of the Cowboys, he appeared in 103 games, including 102 starts. He had 1,881 carries for 8,262 yards and 68 touchdowns.

He also had 305 receptions for 2,336 yards and 12 additional touchdowns.

During the 2022 season, Elliott appeared in 15 games, including 14 starts. He had 231 carries for 876 yards and 12 touchdowns.

He also had 17 receptions for 92 yards.
