The Cardinals running back is entering his third season in the NFL, all as a member of the Cardinals.

Last season, he led the team in rushing. He finished with 660 yards and averaged 55 yards per game. He also led with three rushing touchdowns.

There wasn’t even a close second to Ellington. Kerwynn Williams finished behind him with 246 yards.

Ellington will be an huge asset once again to the Cardinals offense. Look for him to have a solid opening game against a Saints defense that struggled last season and again during the preseason.
