    In New York, Elliott would join a depth chart led by Breece Hall, who is returning from a torn ACL suffered last season. The Jets also agreed to re-sign Ty Johnson to a one-year contract Thursday, a source told Schefter, and have Zonovan Knight and Michael Carter on the roster.

    If Elliott were to join the Bengals, he'd join a squad led by Joe Mixon and including Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams. Samaje Perine left in free agency to sign with the Denver Broncos.

    Elliott, who was set to count $16.7 million against the Cowboys' salary cap, was released by the team March 15.

    In 2019, Elliott signed a six-year extension worth $90 million that included $50 million in guaranteed money, but his numbers fell off the past three seasons, topping 1,000 yards (with 1,002) only once -- in 2021, when the league expanded to a 17-game schedule.

    Injuries slowed Elliott the past two years. He played through a partially torn posterior cruciate ligament in 2021 while not missing a game. He missed only two games in 2022 because of a hyperextended right knee but wore a brace for most of the season.

    Although Elliott continued as the starter, the Cowboys relied more on Tony Pollard last season. Pollard ran for 1,007 yards, scored 12 touchdowns and was named to the Pro Bowl for the first time.

    Elliott had a career-low 876 rushing yards in 2022, but he scored 12 touchdowns and remained a top short-yardage back and pass protector. But in the final four regular-season games, he averaged just 2.7 yards per carry, and he had just 17 runs of 10 yards or more on the season.



    Might not be a bad pickup on the cheap. he's still only 27 years old, and would be a good change of pace back with Breece returning.

    All of a sudden, the Jets are the flavor de jour of the FA world now. Talk about a complete 180! Its almost as radical as when Cohen bought the Mets. Not a familiar position to be in for sure. I can get used to this... :)

    If we're going to sign him for the one or two years we (hopefully) have Rodgers, then fine. But we should not be giving a long-term deal to a downward-trending 27 year old RB heading into his 8th season in the league.

    Looks like he considerably slowed last quarter of the season, but yeah, for cheap a decent move.

    If he is looking to win a title and he wants to go to a contender he would have to be willing to take less.

    So if hes willing to take less I would be interested, but if hes not then no thanks.

    Are we going to be linked with every downward-trending veteran out there?

    He's a shadow of his former self... yet I still find him annoying.

    Speaking of RB's what's the status on Breece? Is he working out and running with a good range of motion? Anyone know?

    Honestly I wasn't banking on Breece returning to form until the '24 season. I would love to be wrong but I also want the Jets to be careful with bringing him back too soon.

    He’s the best blitz protector in the league and has been known to be Dak’s eyes and ears pre-snap. Would’ve been nice to have a player like that when developing a young QB.

    He’s not much of a runner anymore since he’s been beaten to shit, but he’s still a useful player which is why he has a good amount of league interest.
