After being released earlier this year by the Dallas Cowboys, former running back Ezekiel Elliot has finally been able to find a new team to play for.
Elliott had been a free agent since the 15th of March when the Cowboys decided to release him after eight seasons with the team.
According to Ian Rapoport and Tom Pelissero of NFL Network, the running back has reached an agreement with the New England Patriots to join the team on a one-year deal that is worth $6 million.
Given the assertions that he had lost several steps and was washed as a result of going through a great deal of wear and tear while playing for the Cowboys,
there was concern that Elliott would not be able to secure a new contract.
This will be the first time in his professional career that the 2016 All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowler will don a different set of uniform colors when he takes the field for his new team.
His visit with the Patriots earlier in the summer must have been fruitful.
Cowboys training camp, he still had two years remaining on his contract, with pay of $13.5 million for this year and $14 million for the following year.
