Ezekiel Elliott Releases Statement On Twitter Regarding His Suspension

Ezekiel Elliott Releases Statement On Twitter Regarding His Suspension

Commissioner Roger Goodell or a selected designee, usually former league executive Harold Henderson, would listen to the appeal.

"Mr. Elliott and his team of representatives are extremely disappointed with the NFL's decision", the Dallas Cowboys star's camp said in a statement.

McMillan was taken in the second round with the 54th overall pick in the April draft after making 275 tackles in three seasons at Ohio State.

Elliott also said he recognizes that this is a big distraction and disruption to "my family, friends, teammates, the Dallas Cowboys organization as well as my fans - and for that I'm sincerely sorry".

"I admit that I am far from flawless, but I plan to continue to work very hard, on and off the field, to mature and earn the great opportunity I have been given".

However, the National Football League handed Elliott a six-game suspension early Friday, sparking outrage within the organization.

The advisers participated in a meeting on June 26, 2017 in New York City with Elliott, who was represented by his legal team and the NFL Players Association.




The attorneys said "a slew of additional credible and controverting evidence will come to light" through the appeal. Should the suspension stand, he'll be eligible to return October 29 at Washington.

The ruling requires Elliott to get an evaluation to determine whether he needs counseling or treatment, and to show proof that he is following up on any recommendations.

The NFL said Friday that more than a dozen witnesses were interviewed, including the woman who alleged physical violence. Last September, it was announced that charges against Elliott would not be pursued due to "conflicting and inconsistent information". "My opinion is there's not even an issue over he-said, she-said". I'm sure he'll appeal and fight this all the way, but similar to Tom Brady's situation, it may not be enough.

Under the NFL's current domestic violence policy, first time offenders receive a six-game suspension, though the league is able to alter that (to make it harsher or more lenient) based on the circumstances surrounding the incident.

Elliott's absence should hurt Dallas through their first six games.

However, the league continued with their own investigation and think they have found enough evidence against him to warrant a suspension.

Elliott was also the subject of backlash in March after video posted online purportedly showed him pulling down a woman's top and exposing one of her breasts at a St. Patrick's Day parade.
