Ezekiel Elliott Geoff Burke-USA TODAY Sports

Ezekiel Elliott played last season with the New England Patriots after spending his first seven seasons with the Dallas Cowboys. And it sounds like all he wanted to do was find a way to get back to Dallas.

“This was my priority. Doing what I could do to get back here,” Elliott said Monday according to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “I have a lot left to accomplish here. I’m excited to get back with the fellas and chase that ring.”

While Ezekiel Elliott was not the primary starter for the team for most of the season, he did get a chance to be the team’s first-team back toward the end of the season. And he believes he can do that for the Cowboys this season.

“I got the chance to start down the stretch last year. I felt comfortable in that role,” Elliott said. “I looking forward to doing what I need to do for this team.”

Most importantly, however, he feels healthy after a PCL injury in 2022.

“I think I’m good,” Elliott said. “My body felt really good last year. My body felt good all of last year. I got my physical. My PCL looks to be healed. So health wise, I think that I’m definitely better than when I left.”

We’ll have to see how he performs this time around in Dallas.
