In Sunday's triumph over the Jets, Patriots running back Ezekiel Elliott had his greatest game, rushing for 80 yards on 16 carries.
Elliott celebrated quickly before starting Week 4.
Elliott played seven seasons for the Cowboys after being drafted first.
I'm delighted to return to Dallas, my offseason home with so much history.
It will be fun to return to AT&T Stadium.”
Executive vice president Stephen Jones said the team didn't offer Elliott a lower contract to avoid "insulting" him.
Elliott was a free agent until Aug. 16, and the Cowboys continually hinted at a reunion that never transpired.
Elliott remarked, “I was definitely disappointed, but everything happens for a reason.
I look forward to this next episode. Excited to be a Patriot.
Elliott wanted to complete his career alongside his pal Dak Prescott in the Cowboys backfield, but didn't.
