This coming weekend, the New England Patriots will be traveling to Dallas to face off against the Cowboys, and running back Ezekiel Elliott will be making his comeback to the city. After seven years as one of the organization’s most prominent players, the running back is certain to be honored by the team in some meaningful way, and it appears that they may have something special in mind to do so.
During an appearance on 105.3 The Fan this week, the question was posed to Jerry Jones, the owner of the Dallas Cowboys, as to whether or not the organization has any plans in place to commemorate Ezekiel Elliott upon his return to Dallas.
Jones did not wish to provide any information, but he did his best to make it appear as though the group is currently working on something really exciting.
Jones is quoted as saying, “I don’t want to blow a surprise, and that’s a good enough answer for you,” and Pro Football Talk reports that he said this.
This enigmatic message sparked a flurry of responses across all social media platforms.
In addition to that, he had some fairly strong things to say about how good Elliott was and how important he was to the Cowboys squad throughout the time that he played for them.
Jones added, “I know that he was one of the best teammates that I’ve had the privilege of seeing on the Cowboys.” “I know that he was one of the best teammates that I’ve had the privilege of seeing.” “He served as a source of motivation for his team.
He was motivational before the games, and his practice routines were off the charts. He would literally practice as if every play was for the championship, which was an inspiring example for the team. As a running back, he possessed really unusual skills, and boy, he could lower that pad and lower that center of gravity.
We will have to wait and see how the squad intends to pay tribute to Elliott in the future.
