The Dallas Cowboys released running back Ezekiel Elliott earlier this week after seven seasons together. And while Dak Prescott and several of his former teammates are “hurt” by the decision, it doesn’t seem like Elliott will linger on the market for too long, Dan Benton of Larry Brown Sports reports.

Rumors about Elliott’s future destination are already swirling and one team has reportedly emerged as a potential favorite.

Heavy Sports senior editor Matt Lombardo reports the Buffalo Bills are likely to hone in on Elliott, citing their need for a power back.

That’s the good news. The bad news is that it’s been widely accepted around the league that Elliott has completely lost his burst. He still brings a rotational value, but he’s no longer a three-down back capable of both running over and away from defenses.

“He’s Lost his burst. Still tough, great in pass pro. Instinctive runner but doesn’t have the same juice or legs he had in past. Not a featured back,” an anonymous general manager told Lombardo.
