NFL Views Zeke Elliott As “Public Enemy No. 1”

The NFL is continuing its investigation into domestic violence allegations aimed at Ezekiel Elliott, and one source tells Adam Schefter of ESPN.com that the league now views the Cowboys running back as “public enemy No. 1.” Elliott is under scrutiny following complaints in Ohio and Florida, both from the same woman.Ezekiel Elliott (vertical)

After the NFL botched the probes into DV claims against former Ravens running back Ray Rice and former Giants kicker Josh Brown, Schefter reports that the league is now attempting to be “as thorough as possible” as it looks into Elliott, and is determined to avoid the same type of mistakes it has made in past inquiries. Elliott’s ex-girlfriend, the victim in the investigation, is cooperating with the NFL as it examines the accusations against the first-round rookie.

Late last month, Elliott’s legal advisor released a statement calling on the NFL to close its probe, arguing that his client has already been interviewed by the league. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones also seemingly wants the matter to end, or at least get some clarification as to its status, as Jason La Canfora of CBSSports.com reported that Jones attempted to speak with NFL investigator Lisa Friel during recent league meetings. Friel, however, did not engage with Jones.

    Tuck your jeans in your boots Zeke and get ready for Randy Goodell to be a mean ol son of a gun. Real men wear cowboy hats and boots, not suits. That’s the truth. Ain’t no suit man gonna boss a Texas man around you a Cowboy now gotta stay true to Texas. Your new roots. South is lifestyle.

      If he’s guilty, he won’t be a Cowboy or from Texas anymore

        Y’all think Jerry Jones shy away from a criminal? Never has, never will. Jerry will keep this sucker cause he runs like a wild boar that hears a gun shot. Cowboys ain’t got no integrity, we all knew that for a long time y’all.

          The same old joke. Look at your team. One probably kneels for the anthem

      What a wonderfully ignorant statement.

      Is that part of the lifestyle, too?

    Y’all see Zeke run free like cattle broke loose. No stopping that big steer when he gets a rollin. Don’t jump in front, you’ll get the horns if you know what I’m sayin. I reckon y’all ain’t got no problem pickin up in this drift. He’s a runnin wild down round the fields all day.

    She is only after money

    At this point he needs to be completely done with her looks like she’s chasing a suit for the money. Any real victim would like to get away from such abuse and be done with it. Seems like she filed twice and continues to want to come back. If you ask me she’s looking for her cut from being loyal to him.

    Didn’t she already admit to lying about this, clearing him of any wrongdoing
