Clarence Hill: Ezekiel Elliot has been told he’s in the clear for 2016 incident

Much of the criticism directed to Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot for his recent homage to Justin Timberlake flows from the fact that Elliott remains under investigation by the league for violating the Personal Conduct Policy in connection with an incdent that occurred last July. Appearing on Friday’s PFT Live, Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram applied an asterisk to that concern.

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.

Until he gets official confirmation that the case is closed, however, a chance remains that someone will come of it. Indeed, it’s possible that he’s simply getting bad advice from his representatives.

  1. Just violence against women / total disrespect of women, what does the league care?

    Now if it were something heinous like smoking weed so he could take fewer opioid painkillers or wearing the wrong colored socks….

  2. That lady was only mad he pulled her top down because she wanted to do it herself. Which she did. a minute and a half later. What drunk young adults do at a st patrick days parade is not going to conform to the paragon of virtues that the NFL apparently wants their players to be, and it shouldnt. who cares. Now I’m going to go do some more “research” on girls getting their tops pulled down at parades.

  3. As a Cowboy fan and Zeke fan regardless of if he had been cleared or not you can’t pull down a girls tops in public. Even if you just watched her do it, its not right. You are a public figure and have to understand you live under a microscope. If you don’t want to live that way go do something else for a living otherwise keep your hands to yourself.

  4. poor judgment. he needs to be careful and keep his nose clean. if enough of these kinds of incidents happen then the league would eventually hit him hard.

  5. 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.

    I would argue the opposite.
    When George Constanza told the girl who was deaf in her left ear that he loved her, he soon found out that his regretful decision was undone just like when Superman flew around the earth and reversed time.
    And then he went and made the same mistake again.

    I hate to say it but Zeke is as dumb as George Costanza.

  6. this isn’t his 1st rodeo and not his last – time will show what a tool this guy is and i’m a buckeye fan that knows better he’s gotten worse after the big pay day!

  7. It’s really hard to like this guy, he comes across as not too bright and intent on getting all the attention.

    From the way he wears his clothes to the juvenile Salvation Army kettle stunt, he looks like an arrogant brat. Not too mention his behavior towards women.

  8. Definitely Cowboy’s Captain Material!
    Mamas’ don’t let your babies grow up to be like the Cowboys
    Cowboys ain’t easy to love and they’re harder to hold
    They’d rather give you a BS song then diamonds or gold
    If you don’t understand him and he don’t die young
    He’ll probably just fade away
