Former Cowboys Receiver Dez Bryant Doesn’t Believe Ezekiel Elliott is Cooked
Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott likely played his last game with the Cowboys, following a 2022 season where Elliott’s play declined sharply, and considering that Elliott carries a $16.72 million cap hit.
Former Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is firing back at a report from The Athletic’s Bob Sturm that stated that Elliott’s only option may be to stay with the Cowboys can take a sizeable pay cut, as no other team would want him due to his decline.
“How can all scouts and analysts agree to this?” Bryant said, according to Clutch Points. “Zeke ain’t gotta tell me s**t for me to know he was sacrificing his unhealed body to give the Cowboys the best chance to win games playing whatever role.
“But if you[‘re] going to talk about his game declining make sure you talk about how badly injured he was. Make it make sense. Everybody will eventually take a step back but nowhere near how they are trying to make Zeke look… keep your mental tight, Zeke.”
