Zeke

You think Goodell will suspend a key Jets addition in their all-in, Hard-Knocks season?

Here's the prime evidence.

"...But the situation just got out of hand from the jump."

"Sorry, but..." isn't an apology. It isn't accepting responsibility and doesn't express regret or remorse.
 
This pic is almost 2 years old. Is this story just coming out? Or did the Pats know about it when they were considering signing him?
He never visited here. His agent said that he was visiting Foxboro after he left the Jets. The team never confirmed or discussed anything directly. From the very start of those rumors, a lot of people (including me) were saying that would be a really weird signing, and at least one talking head made the point that it seemed like the agent was using NE to raise the urgency for the Jets.

The earliest I've seen is that it was released to the media Aug. 3, 2023. I'm sure NFL clubs knew about it earlier. I think that's why he was allowed to move on from the Vikings.
 
I think that Zeke may be the type of person that wants to prove to people that he still has was it takes.
I think he understands he is not THE guy anymore and is going to be more of a situational player for us behind Stevenson.

I think Zeke thinks he CAN still be THE guy and he's out to prove it. It can only help us.

Now that all of his contract specifics have been revealed; it's apparent that Bill Belichick accomplished a real team-friendly deal with Elliott that's certainly nothing for foes to be celebrating.

The Patriots look like the real winners in this situation.

Elliott and Rhamondre Stevenson have the potential to be the best running back duo in the division and the league. That's not something to be scoffed at just because many have adopted the "never pay a running back" mentality in recent years.

That may be an aspect that comes back to haunt the Bills as they attempt to adopt a new offensive identity this season with a less mobile quarterback. Relying on the run game would be an optimal choice to avoid having Josh Allen instinctively run with the football.

However, their current running back room is quite an unremarkable bunch which consists of James Cook, Damien Harris, and Latavius Murray.

Maybe instead of celebrating under the assumption that a player was "paid too much" given where he is in his career, your team's general manager should have spent more on game-changing running backs that your team has needed for many years.

But the real test will come once the regular season begins in less than four weeks. It seems safe to say that the Patriots' backs will be the superior group in the division, and hopefully, Elliott will look and earn every bit of his contract as he helps the offense get back into a groove.

Here's his actual deal. Any incentives earned will go on 2024's cap. Very team friendly for sure. $2.9 cap hit.

I think Judon's just happy one of his recruiting efforts finally worked out :coffee:
