Ezekiel Elliott Visits with Patriots This Weekend



The ex-Cowboy’s visit was magnified with news of Ty Montgomery’s injury in training camp last week, but it’s yet another show of interest from the Patriots in adding another RB before the season that spells trouble for Rhamondre Stevenson.


Elliott, who racked up over 200 attempts last year, has certainly seen better days with less wear and tear, but with the Patriots keen on adding another running back, his visit becomes more consequential. Zeke’s receptions by year have declined every year since his 77-catch campaign in 2018, and he’s well clear of the 1500-touch threshold before RB production tends to fall off a cliff, so his role would likely be exclusively on early downs and short yardage – a role he had in 2022 that was enough to place a glass ceiling on teammate Tony Pollard’s production.


The same scenario could play out in New England if he were to join the Patriots for 2023.
