Dallas Cowboys stud running back Ezekiel Elliott met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in New York City on Tuesday.
The meaning behind this meeting what to discuss an incident Elliott was involved in early this offseason in Las Vegas. Following the meeting, reports surfaced that Elliott was unlikely to be disciplined by the NFL.
The league has now confirmed this in a statement.
Elliott was seen in handcuffs following an incident with a Vegas-based DJ in May. Though, he was not arrested. This is a clear indication that the NFL concluded that Elliott did not violate the league’s personal conduct policy.
Suspended for six games back in 2017, Elliott’s maturity has become an issue. This all comes at a time when he’s looking to become the highest-paid running back in NFL history.
Despite dodging the proverbial bullet here, Elliott must remain on his best behavior off the field. The league, Goodell included, has already put him on notice for past off-field issues.
