Ezekiel Elliott Suspended for 6 games

Two years ago, someone at 345 Park Avenue leaked to Stephen A. Smith of ESPN the notion that Patriots quarterback Tom Brady had destroyed his cell phone in connection with the #Deflategate investigation. Within a day of the leak, Brady was suspended four games due in part to the allegation that he’d destroyed his cell phone.

Now, it seems like someone at 345 Park Avenue has leaked to Cris Carter of FS1 the notion that Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott is about to be suspended, with some eye-opening details.

Via Ryan Glasspiegel of TheBigLead.com, Carter said on FS1’s Undisputed that "in the next 48 hours I would be shocked if Zeke was not suspended.” Carter added that, "based on the information that’s going to come out, it’s going to be fairly easy to determine that something happened to this woman in her four days of being with Zeke.” (The specific allegation is that Elliott committed five acts of domestic violence in a six-day window.)

Carter described the situation as a case of "assault or domestic violence,” and Carter hinted that "when the information comes out there’s going to be some similarities” to Tom Brady’s suspension, including "information that he had been advised possibly to give up, that was destroyed.”

Carter ultimately suggested that Elliott’s banishment will be in the range of Brady’s four-game suspension. If this happens, it will contradict multiple proclamations from Cowboys owner Jerry Jones regarding the absence of any evidence of domestic violence.

That said, there’s no guarantee that Carter’s comments will be borne out by the eventual facts. He was careful to couch his terms in a way that would protect him from @OldTakesExposed, stopping short of reporting anything but merely sharing what he’s hearing. (Then again, Smith used similar tiptoe terms with Brady, prompting a negative reaction from him to our posts on the issue and generating some of our all-time favorite drops from his daily radio show, including "Mike Florio needs to grow the hell up” and "Would you please break a damn story?”)

If what Carter is hearing is accurate, it’s likely not a coincidence that someone from the league office saw fit to prime the pump by leaking startling information about Brady’s case in 2015 and now Elliott’s case to one of the weekday morning #EmbraceDebate shows. Getting inflammatory information into the public domain now makes it less stunning when the league issues its press release.

It’s nevertheless odd that the league office would see fit to hand such sensitive information regarding crime and punishment to a player who once urged rookies to arrange for a fall guy.

Same exact thing happened right before the Tom Brady suspension.

Also, this seems more credible coming from Carter. He isn't a guy that's racing other reporters to break the news. There is no reason for him to make this up.

Byebye Zeke. If this is in fact a proven case of DV and they have solid proof that he hit a woman, he should get no less then what Ray Rice got. Buh Bye.

Unproven La'el, career bust Cooper, and no depth at all on the O-line?

Good luck with repeating 2016 this year.

Oh, im sorry... Are you the police, DA, investigator, or anyone else with direct info on the matter?

No?

 

Didnt think so. 

If the league suspends him, you bet your arse there is some kind of solid proof. If they suspend him over hearsay, they open themselves up to lawsuits.

But 2000 yards. So no.

He had 322 rushing attempts for 1631 yards last year. Averaging 5.1 yards with the best offensive line in the league. Where is he gonna average another yard per carry to hit 2000? It's not gonna happen.

Edit:

I know that was a joke but It's a good chance to annoy those cowboy fans that like to hang out on the Eagles board for whatever reason.

So only a 2-game suspension? Even Goodell said he didn't get it right.

Actually I was hoping they give him more carries and run him into the ground in an attempt for 2000 yards.

 

But yeah it's a joke aimed that the moron who thought because the Cowboys are popular an elite player would never get suspended.

I agree, the league is not tough enough at times on DV.   I like the Ray Rice analogy... if they have proof.... bye bye.... but that should also apply to everyone else as well. If they did that the cowboys may not be able to field 11 players on offense and defense.

Well since Eagles had the best OL last year even with Lane gone  you think you might have won a few more games. Yea Dallas does not have the best OL and lost their weekest player and a good backup but we'll see how that works out. But if your QB with the best OL in the NFL and all of that depth can't win a game in the 4th quarter then you guys are sunk for years. Your an aging team with a QB that you gave the farm for last year. Your draft picks have been below average the last 5-6 years and your GM is forced to chase every FA to fix the holes every year. 

It wouldn't surprise me if Zeke gets suspended and yes he needs to grow up. If he did hit that girl then he deserves to be punished. 

He's great player and has a very bright future but he has to handle himself as profesional. 

This season will be fun to watch or we hope so.

Best Line .... We had Big V in  RT  who was a rookie ... because o f injuries   Add that  Wentz a rookie and a ROOKIE HC just playing with fire .... We wont mention THE WORST  WR Corps  in NFL .  You Dallas boys like to minimize what Eagles did last year .. is it to try a make you feel better about the future ?   Yes Dak was a Rookie last year as well ... but he did not have any of the problems   Wentz and Eagles had.   The Online stayed healthy , had Ws that could catch the ball  and had RBs  that were not injured   and to top it off ..... went into a system / team thats been in place.

He's a Cowboys player so crediting him with any crime makes it a an 80/20 shot at being right
