Ezekiel Elliott is "doing great" while seeking a new contract following his release by the Cowboys.

Former Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is seeking a new contract as a free agent after being released by his only previous team in March.

Elliott, who emerged as one of the league's finest running backs during his time in Dallas, is likely still hurting from the move.

Elliott, who recently participated in a Light It Up event to raise funds for the battle against childhood cancer, appears to be doing well.

Elliott declined to comment on his release from the Cowboys or his future, per David Moore of the Dallas Morning News.

However, he did give reporters five words to describe how he's feeling. "I'm doing very well. Excellent work"

Elliott was understandably unwilling to discuss his release from the Cowboys or his unsuccessful quest for a free agent contract.

Elliott, who was scheduled to count $16.7 million against the salary cap in 2023, was deemed expendable after the breakout season of fellow runner Tony Pollard. Reportedly, the Pro Bowl running back wished to play for the Philadelphia Eagles, the New York Jets, and the Cincinnati Bengals.

However, each of those teams promptly bragged about their running backs' locker rooms, essentially expressing thanks but no thanks to Elliott. Elliott's former quarterback colleague Dak Prescott has been vocal about Elliott's possible return to Dallas, and the Cowboys have not ruled out the possibility.
