Ezekiel Elliott reportedly told by his reps that he won't face NFL punishment
The Cowboys running back thinks he'll skate when the NFL reveals the findings of its investigation
At leastbut perhaps Elliott is less concerned about his future than some reports would have you believe.
According to Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, appearing on Pro Football Talk Live, Elliott has been told that “he will face no punishment” for the incident that sparked the investigation.
Per Hill, Elliott has been advised by his representatives that he will face no punishment from the league as a result of the 2016 incident, and that it’s just a matter of time before the NFL closes the case. Because Elliott subjectively believes he’s in the clear, his decision to pull down a woman’s top during a St. Patrick’s Day parade seems less stupid, in theory.
That’s sort of the crux of this -- if Elliott thinks he’s going to be cleared by the NFL’s investigation, he’s likely a lot less concerned about how his behavior at the St. Patty’s Day parade could be perceived. And therefore might be less worried about what others think of his behavior, when he believes that he’ll be able to skate on any investigation charges.
There is no real timetable for, but if you believe what Elliott’s representation is telling its client, he could be in the clear.
