Is Ezekiel Elliott headed to Cleveland? Let us take a closer look at this.

Ezekiel Elliott has been linked to the Cleveland Browns since mid-May. Is he?

The Cowboys released him, making him an unrestricted free agent. Maybe he brought his large red kettle. RB Tony Pollard replaced Elliott and was cheaper.

Last season, Elliott earned $12.4 million. The former first-rounder inked a $90 million six-year agreement in 2019. Dallas had franchised Pollard, so it was inevitable.

Elliott's release gave the Cowboys $10.9 million in cap room.

Pollard, like Dak Prescott, was a fourth-round pick in 2019. He quickly passed Elliott's carries. Pollard's fourth-round contract paid $965,000 last year.

Elliott used to average over 300 carries each season, but in the past three years, his rushes have dropped drastically. Importantly, most of those carries were in the Red Zone, where his running style was hard to stop.

His 22 running touchdowns in the past two seasons made him a specialist instead of the featured back.

He's a Buckeye. Elliott wants to sign a new mailbox. Is 441 his next zip code?
