Zeke probably wants a bigger contract than what's been offered and most teams are waiting for the draft first. Zeke now is nowhere near prime Zeke. Teams are likely offering on the low end and if they can't get their rb in the draft, they might offer him a mid level contract.

He was so injured that he played in a meaningless Week 18 game against the Eagles practice squad in 2021 just to get over 1,000 yards for the season when our playoff position was already locked up. As soon as he passed 1,000 yards after his 18 carries, the 3rd most he had in a game that season, he came out.

He wasn't injured. He was just washed. Stop the false narratives.
I'm about to shut your face:



Oct 6, 2021NFLKnee Strain Grade 1Elliott was bothered by his knee ahead of Week 5. He shook off the knee issue and was active.
Oct 10, 2021NFLChest Rib Sprain/Pull UnspecifiedElliott hurt his ribs in Week 5’s game against the New York Giants. He was good for the next game
Nov 7, 2021NFLKnee Strain Grade 1Elliott suffered a right knee contusion during Week 9's game against the Broncos. He didn't miss any game
Nov 21, 2021NFLKnee PCL Tear Grade 3Elliott briefly left the Week 11 game with a knee injury. He played through a partially torn PCL during the 2021 season
Oct 23, 2022NFLKnee MCL Sprain Grade 2Zeke played through the injury in Week 7, then missed the next 2 games.

They can say what they want.

You're not playing in Week 18, in a meaningless game, against the Eagles practice squad, with the playoffs position locked up, getting your 3rd most carries of the season, just to come out as soon as you get to 1,000 yards for the season if you're "hurt".

You can paint him as some kind of hero for playing "hurt" if you want. That's your call.

So, either he is washed or selfish and would rather hurt the team by playing "hurt" in the name of racking up some stats in a meaningless game. Both of those is not somebody I want near this roster.

You need to reread what I said and not get emotional instead.

Here. I'll say it again:

You have to realize that Zeke is to you what Dak is to the people you argue with, right?

Zeke is to you what Dak is to posters like AC.
You need to reread what I said. No...I'm not.

Or prove it. Prove to us....that
1) I've never criticized Zeke...or never made fun of him.
2) I hate Dak as much as they hate Zeke.
3) Prove that I have unfairly criticized Dak.



If you can't...shut your face. You won't because you can't. You just spout off stuff you think is clever and conquering. It ain't.

Ah so you base your WHOLE Zeke philosophy on ONE game. And incorrectly. Making way too many assumptions.

Zeke plays hurt....proof he wants to play and win. You think he's gonna voluntarily sit out a whole game? This "meaningless game" is only meaningless to you so you can fight about it. Zeke doesn;t believe in meaningless games or plays. That's one reason he said yes to the stupidty of playing center on a one man offensive line. A stupid meaningless....play that was bound to fail...just like "the slide" the previous season.

If you wanna be mad about contract and "meaningless games"....then do it to the correct entities.

The emotional attachment some of ya'll get to players is insane.

When you realize they care nothing about you and are just a name on a back of a jersey then when they leave you don't find yourself an emotional wreck.

Again....so presumptous. Its not emotional attachment on my part.

You making up lies and assumptions....might be.

I proved you wrong a couple times already this morning....now you are lashing out. Emotional.

The only thing you've proved is that you are just as emotionally attached to Zeke and the Dak homers are to Dak.

Except i am on record as severely criticizing the hold out, the obscene contract, and coming back out of shape. Just not incessantly so.
I even made a fat joke or two.

You just keep being wrong.

If he wants to play, he will be picked up, but he was a big money guy, so I'm sure most teams are waiting for the best deal.

Also, I would think someone could make a deal with him, but he was designated a June 1 release. Maybe they can talk but not have an official deal until after June 1. I know we can't spend that money until June 1, so .............

I wouldn't be shocked if he didn't play next season.

Dude is beyond done.
..I would be insanely shocked. Zeke still have about 2-3 yrs in the tank. Though has regressed. Probably from all the beating he took first 3 yrs.

I think Zeke would sign up with a playoff team.

Not for a scrub team.

Zeke earned his money.

Time to enjoy it.
