Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott Issues Apology for Off-Field Conduct

Ezekiel Elliott met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in New York on Tuesday to discuss a May incident in Las Vegas involving the Cowboys running back.

Elliott issued an apology for his off-field conduct via Twitter following the conclusion of the meeting, Jeremy Bergman of NFL.com reports.

“I’ve worked hard to make better decisions and to live up to the high standards that are expected of me,” Elliott wrote. “I failed to do that here and I made a poor decision.”

The meeting between Elliott and Goodell was preceded by an incident where the running back had a confrontation with a security guard at a Las Vegas music festival. Elliott was briefly detained but never arrested after the guard fell after being nudged by the running back.

Despite never being charged with a crime, Elliott is subject to a fine or suspension under the league’s personal conduct policy. The NFL has not yet issued a statement on Tuesday’s meeting.

Joining Elliott in New York for the meeting were members of Cowboys counsel, sources told NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo.

This isn’t the first time Elliott and Goodell have met to discuss the Cowboys running back’s off-field behavior.

Elliott was suspended six games in 2017 for violating the personal conduct policy. The suspension came after a year-long league investigation into domestic violence accusations made against Elliott despite the running back never being charged by police.
