Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott have been two of the most prominent players on the Dallas Cowboys over the past couple of years. However, Elliott has regressed a little bit as of late. In fact, Tony Pollard had overtaken him this past year as the starting running back. Consequently, the Cowboys made a business decision a few days ago and let Elliott go. Now, Elliott is a free agent who can sign with whichever team he desires.
Overall, this is a sad moment for the Dallas Cowboys, who are losing a very prominent voice in the locker room. Moreover, this is doubly devastating for Prescott, who is best friends with Elliott at this point. Now, Prescott will be feeling just a bit emptier whenever he is in the locker room. In fact, Prescott was recently asked about Elliott's exit, and he seems pretty surprised and definitely upset. "I really can't imagine taking the field without him," Dak said. "It's something that I don't know if it's completely hit me yet."
Dak Prescott Reacts
Additionally, Prescott noted that he is definitely hurt by the decision. He acknowledged that Elliott probably is too and that no matter what, he will always support his friend. Needless to say, it must be nice for Elliott to know that he will always have a friend in Prescott. "I'm hurt," Prescott explained. "I'm sure he is. But it's more important for me to be able to support him. I know he's got more opportunities coming his way. And I love that guy. Proud of him. No. 1 supporter for him no matter what."
For the Cowboys, they are going through a bit of a transition. Their lack of playoff success over these past few years has been very frustrating for the fans. Moreover, Jerry Jones is trying to get one last title in his old age. Overall, it is not going to be easy, but the Cowboys need to start making all of these difficult decisions. Whether or not this will pay off for them, still remains to be seen. Let us know where you think Elliott should go next, in the comments down below.
