Ezekiel Elliott worked out with Dak Prescott, a former Dallas Cowboys player.
Prescott hosts daily offseason training at his 55-yard practice area. as per Lia Assimakopoulos from The Dallas Morning News reported on Wednesday that Prescott talked about bringing Elliott back after practicing with him.
Prescott called Elliott his best friend. We’ll keep working, and continue to push one another. He looks great. “I’m always his biggest supporter and excited for any opportunity that he may have coming up.”

Dallas released Elliott following seven seasons. The three-time Pro Bowler is now unsigned along with Dalvin Cook Leonard Fournette and Kareee Hunt.
“I think the running back position is tough,” Prescott said. “All those guys are dynamic backs, can still play and have a lot left in the tank. I hope all of them make the right decision and not just jump on whatever’s fast. You’re never surprised about what this league does. You always have to understand it’s a business and try not to take anything personal.”
Prescott may still get what he wants. Jerry Jones, Cowboys’ president and general manager, said earlier this month that a reunion with Elliott is ” open to me.”.
Elliott scored 12 touchdowns despite Tony Pollard taking over the backfield. However, he had career lows for average yards per carry (3.8), and yards after impact (1.5). Elliott, 27, will likely have to take a significant pay cut in order to rejoin the Cowboys.
