Report: Elliott may have destroyed evidence, suspension likely

  Report: Elliott may have destroyed evidence, suspension likely A decision from the NFL regarding Ezekiel Elliott is expected to come in the near future, and there is a growing sense that the Dallas Cowboys running back will be suspended. A decision from the NFL regarding Ezekiel Elliott is expected to come in the near future, and there is a growing sense that the Dallas Cowboys running back will be suspended. According to Hall of Fame wide receiver Cris Carter, the Tom Brady case with Deflategate may play a role in how the league decides to punish Elliott.

A great example of this would be Dallas Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett. During his tenure as the head coach in Dallas , Garrett has done admirably well under In 2014 , the Cowboys won the second highest number of games since 1996 and were one horrendous call from the NFC Championship.

In a story that is powerful in its simplicity, ESPN's Todd Archer notes that the Dallas Cowboys have had players suspended in 16 separate instances since 2014. This story comes the week that Ezekiel Elliott received a six-game suspension from the NFL in what promises to be a bitter battle over the league's Personal Conduct Policy.

A few notes from Irving's piece, which you should click through to see for full context:

While there were 16 suspensions, it is 13 players because Randy Gregory has received two suspensions for a total of 30 games, and Rolando McClain three for a total of 30.

Nolan Carroll and Damien Wilson, who have both been arrested this offseason, may add to the count.

Three players - Shaquelle Evans, R.J. Dill, and Joseph Randle - were no longer Cowboys by the time their suspensions began.

A hallmark of Jerry Jones' tenure as owner is that he will roll the dice on whomever he believes will help the team win football games. You can view this as amorality, or you can view it as a manifestation of the belief that men are fallible and we are a nation of second chances, or somewhere in between. But, as long as he's alive, don't expect the Cowboys to operate much differently.

Jerry Jones explains silence on Elliott, says team is 'in support of Zeke' .
In his first media availability since Ezekiel Elliott was suspended, Jerry Jones chose not to comment on the situation. The Dallas Cowboys owner will remain relatively quiet until a final decision on the suspension is made. "I don't have anything to say about anything with the commissioner or with anything to do with Zeke at this particular time," Jones said Saturday after the Cowboys' preseason win, according to Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News.Elliott reportedly has an appeal hearing set for Aug.
