The Dallas Cowboys have added former running back Tashard Choice to their coaching staff. Choice, who was with the team from 2008-2011, will work under current running backs coach Gary Brown as the assistant.
While Choice did not have a ton of success in Dallas following his selection in the fourth round of the 2008 NFL draft, he picked a good time to rejoin the team in his new capacity.
The Cowboys current running back depth chart is as good as it gets from around the league, with Ezekiel Elliott now joining the likes of Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris.
Zeke Elliott is expected to do great things in Dallas as soon as he steps onto the field. Veterans like Brown and Choice along with his team mates Morris and McFadden (who was also a fourth overall pick back in 2008) can help prepare Elliott for the expectations that lie ahead when he straps on his helmet with the star on the side of it.
The competition will be plentiful as always come training camp for the Dallas Cowboys. Current players, now alongside another former player, will all work towards the same goal of improvement – on their path towards Super Bowl 51.
