2. Philadelphia Eagles

This one would irk Cowboy fans if this happened but don't be shocked if it does. Philadelphia officially hired Kellen Moore on Feb. 5 to make him their offensive coordinator, replacing Brian Johnson.

They are going to be in the market for a tailback as D'Andre Swift is going to be a free agent as well. With a hole on the roster, Pollard becomes an appealing option.

Moore was the Cowboys offensive coordinator from 2019-2022 and coached Pollard during that timeframe.

ESPN's Tim McManus thinks the 26-year-old could be a fit in the Eagles offense. He said, "Pollard is well-versed in Moore's scheme and would provide a dual-threat skill set (he had more than 3,600 rushing yards and more than 1,300 receiving yards over five seasons in Dallas) that the Eagles tend to gravitate toward."

The Eagles will be looking for a running back who can be an effective ball carrier and pass-catcher.

In Moore's offense from 2019-2022, Pollard racked up 510 carries for 2,616 rushing yards, and 17 rushing touchdowns. He also snagged 121 receptions with 1,007 receiving yards, and five receiving scores.

This kind of production in an offense with Jalen Hurts, A.J. Brown, and Devonta Smith could entice Pollard. It doesn't hurt that Philadelphia has one of the most dominating offensive lines in the game.

Playing in an offense that Pollard is already familiar with is something that he will surely consider.
