Would the Dallas Cowboys ever consider trading away one of their finest assets in budding superstar running back Ezekiel Elliott?
The Dallas Cowboys fancy themselves as a contender for Super Bowl LII.
Really? Never heard that before.
If this is true, the franchise should strongly consider its own history in trying to make that claim a reality.
To start with, there’s no denying that running back Ezekiel Elliott was the teams most valuable scorer during his tremendous rookie campaign a year ago.
But the long touchdown runs, the back-breaking screen passes and that leap into the red Salvation Army kettle during prime time television all pale when it comes to winning Super Bowls – right?
Recent news surrounding Elliott is far from encouraging, and I don’t care how you might attempt to explain any of it away.
There’s allegations of domestic violence and also a known fight at a Dallas bar weighing over this players head and, to be quite frank, it’s a tad too late and few million dollars beyond this type of behavior.
How can the brass of the Dallas Cowboys sleep at night while also wondering when exactly Elliott is going to get in trouble again? The Cowboys still don’t know if Elliott will face any type of suspension as a result of that which we already know, let alone anything else that may go down in the future.
