Ezekiel Elliott to Meet With NFL Commissioner to Discuss the Las Vegas Incident

In May, Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott made headlines due to an altercation at a Las Vegas music festival. The All-Pro runner appeared to have pushed down a staff member in a video that TMZ has surfaced. Ultimately, the Cowboys star was handcuffed for his actions, but never arrested.

According to ESPN’s Todd Archer, Elliott will meet with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell on Tuesday.

Zeke’s Previous Incidents

This is not the first time Elliott has found himself in a dilemma of this sort.

Back in 2017, the running back was sentenced to a six-game suspension due to domestic violence allegations from his former girlfriend.

To add insult to injury, Elliott has been reported to have had altercations at multiple Dallas-area bars. Because of his record of off the field issues, the commissioner may try to make an example out of Elliott. Although this is a possibility, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones expects his running back to avoid punishment.

Back in May, after the incident, Jones said, “I think that the main thing is that I don’t see anything that needs supporting.” He continued by stating, “No, I don’t see that having any consequences for us.”

The Cowboys picked up Elliott’s fifth-year option earlier this offseason. In 2020, the running back will be paid $9.1 million. Meanwhile, his salary for the 2019 season will be $3.85 million.

Although Cowboys Executive Stephen Jones recently said that the Vegas incident would not affect contract negotiations between Elliott and the team, thoughts may change if the running back continues to misbehave.
