Tony Pollard will officially be leading the Dallas Cowboys rushing attack in 2023.

The running back officially signed his franchise tag on Thursday, a person with knowledge of the situation told The Dallas Morning News, meaning he will be on the roster next season. The Cowboys placed the tag on him earlier this month.

Dallas now has until July 17 to negotiate a longer-term deal with the running back. The figure to keep Pollard from becoming a free agent this offseason was $10.1 million.

Pollard provides an explosive element this offense needs.

Pollard had a career-high 1,378 yards from scrimmage (carries/receptions) this past season. His average of 5.94 yards led all backs. Next on the list: San Francisco’s Christian McCaffrey.
