It appears the Green Bay Packers will get nothing for linebacker Jayrone Elliott.
The Packers traded Elliott to the Dallas Cowboys for a conditional seventh-round draft pick on roster cut-down day. Obviously, the condition was that Elliott actually play for the Cowboys.
He played zero defensive snaps in the first two weeks and one special teams snap. He won’t be playing anymore, as of now.
The Cowboys released Elliott on Tuesday.
Dallas made the move to add defensive end Damontre Moore to the roster. Moore had been serving a two-game suspension.
It’s possible Elliott will catch on somewhere as a bottom-of-the-roster special teams player. It’s also possible Jayrone Elliott will be out of the league.
The Packers tried to groom him to be part of the outside linebacker rotation. He flashed early in his career during the preseason, but did absolutely nothing the past two years.
Could we see the Packers bringing him back?
Only if they suffer multiple injuries at outside linebacker.
Elliott’s time has passed.
