Coming off the worst statistical year of his career, Ezekiel Elliott feels he has a lot to prove in 2021.

"Just having the year I had last year, you don't need more motivation than that," Elliott said. "I just know the type of player I am. I don't think I showed that last year. I got a lot to prove. I just made sure I didn't leave any doubt out there that I didn't do as much as I needed to do."

The running back rushed for 979 yards in 15 games for the Dallas Cowboys in 2020.

Elliott signed a six-year, $90 million extension in 2019 that guaranteed him $50 million. He is set to make $9.6 million this year and his $12.4 million base salary in 2022 is already fully guaranteed.
