Elliott, who is entering his sixth NFL season, looks very ripped in the picture he shared on Instagram. It is clear that no one can “fat-shame” the three-time Pro Bowler like they did a couple of years ago.
One Cowboys fan on Twitter had some fun with Elliott’s new photo, posting it next to one of former Cowboys offensive lineman Joe Looney dressed up as Zeke in 2017. Looney’s gut is sticking out of Elliott’s trademark crop top jersey.
“Can we just take a minute to give @EzekielElliott props for the inspiring transformation he underwent?” wrote Twitter user @Dylan88Wilson.
Elliott responded to being tagged in the post, joking that he “came a long way” since 2017.
I came a long way 🤣 https://t.co/Wfz7kgUTNI

Elliott, who turns 26 later this week, is coming off his worst NFL season. He rushed for 979 yards in 15 games last fall, which is four yards less than he totaled in 2017, when he missed six games due to suspension.
Elliott will no doubt be looking for a bounce back season, and he certainly looks like he’s physically capable of having one.
