NFL free agency is upon us and the Dallas Cowboys have made several big moves.
Elliott burst onto the scene with the Cowboys in 2016, garnering the first of his three Pro Bowl selections and two NFL All-Pro selections. Elliott’s immediate success and personality made him a fan favorite during his time with the Cowboys.
Fans and pundits on social media reacted to Elliott’s upcoming release.
Not gonna lie to yal, the Zeke news has messed up my mood.
Believe me, I get the business and such. I get this is apart of the game but dang it.

Zeke’s been my favorite active Cowboy since 2016, this one is gonna hurt if it works out this way.
Most of you won’t appreciate this man the way he should be for continuously running into an 8 man box most of his career & sacrificing his body for his team.
I will, though. https://t.co/pwiKUo4aCk

Just remember all these things can be true:
Zeke has declined
His cap hit is too big
He has made big contributions
He seems to be a great teammate
It will be sad to see him go

This being Zeke Elliott’s last snap as a Dallas Cowboy is a war crime

If we really moving on it is a sad ass day… Zeke gave us his all every game. I’ll always support and show love to him!! Cowboys for life. 21 for Life! Thank you Zeke!

Have always loved Zeke. Though it’s been frustrating to see the Cowboys key him in as the lead back for a couple years too long, that’s not his fault. He’s always played with passion for the franchise and given his all. Much love to ZEKE https://t.co/Y1ON8y3AGj

The 2016 draft was particularly stacked, but even Zeke hitting close to the ceiling for his career production doesn't put close to the career values for the players taken right after him. Just something we have to accept pic.twitter.com/K6jAVRLStN
