ESPN’s Dan Graziano reports it “would not be surprising” to see the Cowboys cut Ezekiel Elliott this offseason.

This comes just weeks after The Athletic’s Bob Sturm reported Elliott had “one option for employment above the league minimum and it is right here in Dallas.”

Knowing Jerry Jones’ infatuation with Elliott, the team outright cutting him would be surprising.

Elliott has long been expected to take a major pay cut this offseason, but the team can save $4.8 million by releasing him, and $10.9 million if they designate him as a post-June 1 cut.

With the Cowboys already expected to retain Tony Pollard this offseason, it makes little sense to have significant cap invested in Elliott, whose best days are clearly behind him.
