On Sunday, New England Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott will return to the building that he called home for the first seven seasons of his NFL career as a member of the Dallas Cowboys.
Elliott’s relationship with the Cowboys didn’t end on a sour note, so it shouldn’t be shocking to find out that Dallas is supposedly planning to honor their former running back on Sunday when he’s back inside AT&T Stadium.
Some might be wondering why the Cowboys would honor a former player while he’s still currently in the league playing for another team, but former Dallas wide receiver Michael Irvin recently shared on “Undisputed” that he doesn’t have a problem with any of it.
“I am absolutely fine, and looking forward to seeing whatever it is that [Cowboys owner Jerry Jones] has planned to honor Zeke.”

Irvin also mentioned how Elliott deserves to be honored by the Cowboys because he immediately helped pull the franchise “out of the gutter” when he arrived in 2016 and helped lead Dallas to a 13-3 record a season after they finished 4-12.
During his career with the Cowboys, Elliott did enough to rank third all-time in Dallas history in career rushing yards, career rushing touchdowns, and rushing yards per game.
Even for a franchise like the Cowboys that has had legendary running backs like Emmitt Smith and Tony Dorsett suit up for them, Elliott is easily one of the best running backs to ever play in a Dallas uniform.
So when he’s honored while wearing a Patriots jersey on Sunday, it won’t be shocking if the response from the Cowboys fans in the stands is mostly applause and cheers.
