NY Giants may not be done playing Ezekiel Elliott twice a year after all

It’s almost hard to keep track of how many times running back Ezekiel Elliott has provided NY Giants fans with a headache. Time and time again, he posted strong games against the G-Men in the past, including rushing touchdowns in both games vs. NY last season. People all over New York hate seeing that man celebrate after scoring vs. the Giants.

Earlier this month, news broke that the Dallas Cowboys were releasing the former Pro Bowler. With the team ready to move forward with Tony Pollard, the writing was on the wall for Zeke. However, that doesn’t mean he’s out of your life for good.

According to ESPN insider Adam Schefter, Elliott is hoping to make his decision soon and he has narrowed down his focus to three teams: the Eagles, Jets and Bengals.

Ezekiel Elliott signing with the Philadelphia Eagles would be a nightmare for Giants fans

Imagine a world where Elliott is in the same backfield as… Boston Scott. The horror! Last season against the Giants, Elliott rushed for 73 yards and a touchdown in the Monday Night Football showdown. Then on Thanksgiving Day, Elliott rushed for 92 more yards and another score – both in Dallas wins.

Meanwhile for Scott, the man is known as a ‘Giants killer’ thanks to him basically guaranteed to score a TD against Big Blue whenever Philly and New York go to battle. Elliott and Scott teaming up to take on the Giants would be a nightmare for the NY defense and Wink Martindale.

Per Schefter, Rodgers also has his eyes on Cincy and Gang Green, which makes sense. Elliott knows Burrow from their Ohio State days (though Burrow transferred to LSU) and the Jets are becoming an attractive destination for free agents due to Aaron Rodgers expected to become the team’s new starting signal-caller.

By next week, we should know where Elliott will be suiting up next season. He has said goodbye to Dallas and he’s ready for the next chapter of his career. Let’s hope a move to Cincinnati is on the way. We don’t want to see Elliott head to Philly or to East Rutherford to play for the Jets. It simply can’t happen.
