Then why didn't they? Why didn't over 50 backs have Zeke's 3rd and 4th down conversion success rate?
Well nobody blindly gave them 200 Carries.

Simple as that. Why didn’t pollard have 20 tds? Because he would get us down to the 3 yard line and they would hand the ball to your hero for an easy fall in td.

Any fool can score from the 1. Lol

It’s the guys that can score from anywhere tha matter.

If you look at zekes tds it’s literally over half from the 1.

His best shot for signing on with a team could be for a team that sorely needs a RB who can block well for their QB.

Zeke has made his money and he lives in a relatively modest house up in Frisco.. meaning he is not one of those guys who has squandered his money on crapola. His parents keep him pretty well grounded in that department. Long story short, Zeke doesn't need money as such money will only play a tiny role in whether he signs or with what team. It's going to be about opportunity to play and have a chance to win. No more complicated than that.
I never said he was broke or squandering money. My point is that he's a free agent beggar at this point in his career and hardly choosing where to play. I get it. You have been defending his play for years and mocking us Pollard fans. You'll have to find a new pet cat.

It should not be forgotten that athletes pay a good bit of taxes and agent fees on their salary. If a guy has 10's of millions in the bank, I don't think he would be quick to jump on a vet min type deal. I'm not sure its worth it, given the amount of punishment a player like Zeke takes. If you run for 1 yard or 5, you still get tackled.

This is easy. Lots of solid RBs to be had in the draft. Everyone can see his decline and would rather see how the draft unfolds. Better to pay a fresh legged RB on a rookie deal than she’ll out 4 times as much for a declining veteran. To me, he is the type a team will sign if their #1 guy goes down with an injury. He will likely need to the patient.

This isn't just a Zeke thing, or every team thinking he isn't worth a roster spot. Leonard Fournette, Kareem Hunt, Latavius Murray and others are still out there as well.

Now, before someone argues none of these guys are starter quality anymore, I'm not saying they are. But they are players that can offer something as a backup or in some kind of rotation.

The delay in signing may well be these are all players that want to think of themselves as front line players, and they are having to settle into the idea no team is going to view them as such, and no team will offer a large payday. But all of these guys will be with a team when the season starts

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.
Seems to me MANY posters on here yet, have, an emotional attachment against Dak as well as Zeke. Because that is all they ever post about. In EVERY thread rather it is about either one of them or not.
It works both ways.

Zeke is gone, Dak is what he is until he proves otherwise. I am not as supportive of Dak as I used to be, and even then I was on the fence about him, leaning liking him. But I am not going to hate on the guy either. But will criticize when needed, or make jokes as well.

Zeke is gone but yet the front page seems to be dominated about him. Plenty of other topics about the CURRENT team to discuss. This is directed as a general statement.

It was necessary to take my comment about Zeke and bring up Dak.

If you think thats all he does you must be kellen moore in disguise.

There's any number of rookies out there that will be able to outproduce Zeke

Great teammate but game over
