The Dallas Cowboys made a tough decision in the offseason, at least from an emotional standpoint.
Parting ways with Ezekiel Elliott was a no-brainer, financially speaking, but he did do a lot for the organization in his heyday.
He failed to meet the expectations after signing that big contract, but even his down years were better than most running backs’ career years.
That’s why former star CB Richard Sherman called out Skip Bayless on “Undisputed” for not being appreciative of what the back did for the organization.

He also stated that the only reason why Tony Pollard found success was because Elliott was out there wearing the defense out.
Sherman predicted that Pollard’s numbers would go down this season without Elliott because this will be his first year as that bell-cow kind of running back, which isn’t a role everybody can embrace.
Moreover, he believes Pollard at his best isn’t anywhere near the best version of Elliott, which could be a valid assessment.
Elliott struggled to take care of the football and with inefficiency later in his stint with the Cowboys, and he was making way too much money, so people judged him differently.
Also, perhaps his loud personality and how much he talked when he entered the league kind of backfired and people lost sympathy for him.
But as underwhelming as his final two seasons with the Cowboys were, he’s still perhaps the best offensive player they’ve had in the past decade-plus.
Maybe, he’ll look to remind them that when he visits Arlington on Sunday.
