There was a time when Elliott’s shirt was the most popular in the NFL. In the end, he crashed hard, however. The running back’s first few seasons were decent as he earned three Pro Bowl appearances. But nothing lasts forever as the Cowboys discovered.
They handed him a $50 million extension that put a serious dent in their cap space. In the end, this forced them to trade Amari Cooper while Elliott offered nothing on the field. They finally cut their losses and threw him away like yesterday’s garbage (via SBNation).
