Jayrone Elliott is Out in Dallas

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.

    Yea and Peppers has 2.5 sacks for Carolina and Watt has 2 for Pittsburg. We could have had both those guys in GB this year but the Pack thought Jayrone and Fackrell would be fine behind Clay and Perry. Are you fricken kidding me! That’s the shit this organization does that just pisses me off.

    I think passing on Watt was Thompson trying to outsmart everyone again. It was a safe pick. Watt has pedigree. Word has it he’s a better athlete than JJ. If the kid has one ounce of fire in him you know his big brother will be the benchmark he chases.

    Hey we got two players instead of one and as long as that works out adequately I’m cool with it, but I think picking Watt would have been a pick very few people would bitch about if he didn’t work out for the reasons laid out above.
