Dallas Cowboys Legend Emmitt Smith blasts his former team for releasing RB Ezekiel Elliott.
The NFL’s all-time rushing king isn’t happy with how the Dallas Cowboys do business.
Earlier this week, the Cowboys released two-time rushing champion Ezekiel Elliott in a cap-saving move, ending his seven-year run with the organization.
“Wow, this is amazing to me, no disrespect to Malik Davis. Our starting running back is gone, and his backup has a broken leg?” Smith said. “The NFL stands for not for long. Everyone else, go get your money because they have no love for you.”
Elliott’s release was met with criticism from Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott and Hall of Famer Troy Aikman, who spent all 12 years of his career with the Cowboys.
Elliott’s production slipped last year while battling injuries, rushing for 876 yards with 12 touchdowns and a 3.8 yards per carry average.
The Cowboys are a horribly run organization, so it’s not a big surprise that they handled a loyal player with such disrespect. It just further that they are a joke.
