Ezekiel Elliott may not be a member of the Dallas Cowboys in 2023, but he still has love for his former team as they head into the postseason.

Dallas secured the No. 2 seed in the NFC and will host the No. 7 seed Green Bay Packers on Sunday at 4:30 p.m. ET. The 28-year-old looks like he will make the trip down south to support his former team.

Elliott's season is over as the New England Patriots went 4-13 but he's still in good spirits. The Ohio State product was released by Dallas in March 2023, though his presence was sorely missed. Quarterback Dak Prescott and Elliott both came into the league together in 2016 and had plenty of success.

It wasn't easy for Prescott to see Elliott released this past offseason.

"Playing the game with a brother. To be able to start this NFL career and share so many memories and grow up as men … with this organization...," Prescott said in a charity event in March. "Obviously, I've talked to him. I'm hurt. I'm sure he is. It's more important for me to be able to support him."

As we fast forward 10 months later, Elliott will now return the favor and support his former club in a playoff showdown.

The Ohio State product had a very productive career in Dallas. Elliott racked up 1,881 carries for 8,262 rushing yards and 68 rushing scores. In fact, he led the league in rushing yards in 2016 and 2018. His former teammates will be thrilled to see Elliott in any capacity this postseason.
