Former Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott has narrowed down his options about where to play in 2023 to the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets and Cincinnati Bengals, sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Elliott, 27, would like to make his decision about where to sign by the end of next week, the sources told Schefter.

When he does sign with a team it will likely be in a new number than the No. 21 he wore for the Cowboys for the past seven seasons. On Thursday, Elliott tweeted: "I want my #15 back," referring to the number he wore at Ohio State.

With the Eagles, Elliott would join a backfield led by newly signed Rashaad Penny and including Boston Scott, Kenneth Gainwell and Trey Sermon.

In New York, Elliott would join a depth chart led by Breece Hall, who is returning from a torn ACL suffered last season. The Jets also agreed to re-sign Ty Johnson to a one-year contract on Thursday, a source told Schefter, and have Zonovan Knight and Michael Carter on the roster.

If Elliott were to join the Bengals, he'd join a squad led by Joe Mixon and including Chris Evans and Trayveon Williams. Samaje Perine left in free agency to sign with the Denver Broncos.

Elliott, who was set to count $16.7 million against the Cowboys' salary cap, was released by the team on March 15.
