Ezekiel Elliott may have frustrated us plenty during his time with the Dallas Cowboys, but there's no denying that his short peak was one of the best ever from a Dallas running back. And that's going to keep him in a special place in fans' hearts for years to come.

That's also why Dallas fans are probably watching his free agency more intently than any other fan base.

Zeke's best years are obviously behind him and we don't know what kind of a contract he's demanding, but it's hard to imagine that he's not going to be able to find a home for the season. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if he's just waiting for training camp to play out before signing with a contender.

Even rumors around his free agency have been few and far between, but here are the most likely new homes for Elliott this seaosn.

Ezekiel Elliott Free Agency: Top Destinations

1. Kansas City Chiefs

There are two directions Zeke's free agency can go. He can either sign with a weak team to try to get a big workload and payday, or he can accept lower pay and usage to join a contender.

My hunch is that after taking a pounding with over 2,000 touches in his seven NFL seasons, contending is the right direction.

The Chiefs are obviously the contender right now as Super Bowl favorites, and their top running back is dealing with some concerning injury issues. Behind him on the depth chart is a sea of disappointment, so if Elliott is available on a team-friendly deal that'd be a no-brainer.

And of course for Elliott, that would mean a pretty good shot at a ring, remaining in the national spotlight and probably getting a shot at a pretty nice touchdown total since one of the primary roles he'd be able to contribute in would be as a short-yardage guy.

Now what about a team on the other end of the spectrum?
