Jerry Jones: Latest Ezekiel Elliott incident “not good”

Getty Images

Although Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has insisted there’s nothing to the NFL’s investigation into an allegation of domestic violence against Ezekiel Elliott, Jones acknowledged this week that Elliott could stand to handle himself better off the field.

Asked about another Elliott incident, in which he pulled a woman’s top down in public, Jones said Elliott shouldn’t have done it.

“There is not much that I want to say other than that was unfortunate and not good,” Jones said. “It wouldn’t be the right emphasis one way or the other to get into any communications or dialogue since that happened.”

Asked whether he has communicated that to Elliott directly, Jones declined to answer.

“Again, that wouldn’t be the right emphasis to imply,” Jones said. “I wouldn’t want to say on communication, but I’m aware of the incident and I’m aware of the criticism.”

Elliott has taken a lot of criticism for the way he conducts himself off the field. He had a great rookie season, but he is not having a great offseason.

    What is Jones talking about?

    He said, “It wouldn’t be the right emphasis one way or the other to get into any communications or dialogue since that happened.”

    I think Jerry Jones is losing his marbles. Clearly, the right thing to do is have a sit down talk with Mr. Elliott. The kid is a very talented player who is headed for trouble unless he grows up fast.

    What Jerry didn’t say was that he tried to schmooze the new women appointed to handle these incident for the league and she promptly told him to get lost.

    Jerry just didn’t want anyone to bring up his scandalous photos with strippers from a few years ago. So…uh…no comment.

    He’s a star in the NFL already, he can do what he wants. There won’t be any repercussions if it’s true. Bottom line is, he can play and make the NFL millions so he gets a get out of jail free card until he can’t play at a high level anymore. Teams are tripping over the chance to get Joe Mixon based on his potential to be a star even when there’s video of him breaking a woman’s jaw.

    I’m sure Jerry Jones will keep us a breast of the situation

  6. joe400e says: Apr 1, 2017 6:51 AM

    The level of popularity these players have is beyond belief and to top it off being a Dallas Cowboy multiplies that times 100. Hope he takes a minute to realize what he has before it’s gone.

    I bet none of this will stop Jerrah from giving Zeke a 100 million dollar deal in about 2 years however, morals be damned…

  8. greymares says: Apr 1, 2017 7:04 AM

    When you become a Dallas Cowboy or a Cowboy fan you have bought into being an a$$hole. Just saying.

  9. johny248 says: Apr 1, 2017 7:04 AM

    Doesn’t Jerry have his own photos out there with strippers and naked women all over? He may want to conduct himself better off the field. He has his own reputation off the field with less than ideal situations with women.

  10. critterkiller33 says: Apr 1, 2017 7:26 AM

    Guilty….. he is nothing but trash and will not last long in the NFL…

  11. jasons81 says: Apr 1, 2017 7:26 AM

    I seem to recall some pretty salacious pictures of JJ and some ladies from a few years back…

    I see why he hasn’t had that talk with Elliot yet.

  12. medialovesthecowboys says: Apr 1, 2017 7:29 AM

    FREE ZEKE

  13. johnny07022 says: Apr 1, 2017 7:44 AM

    I wonder who will self destruct first, Elliott or Dez?

  14. pete2112 says: Apr 1, 2017 7:57 AM

    What Jerry didn’t say is how he’s probably done the same things himself during his many drunken stupors. I would like to think even Jerry realizes it’s a bit hypocritical for him to call out bad behavior given his track record.

  15. thejesusofcool says: Apr 1, 2017 8:19 AM

    Jerry and The Boys is the best show since The Beverly Hillbillies. Please don’t stop!

  16. bigbill8517 says: Apr 1, 2017 8:31 AM

    As good as Zeke is, what the heck, he’s still a Buckeye!!

  17. Viva Las Raiders says: Apr 1, 2017 8:32 AM

    “It’s not good but Ezekiel is such a fine team leader that I’ll come out on top no matter what because I’m Jerrah”

  18. meximyke says: Apr 1, 2017 9:01 AM

    Team captain material!

  19. zannicarmrla says: Apr 1, 2017 9:09 AM

    I hope you’re going to change your attitude about women and just be great in football make us fans proud

    ===================================

    A woman telling a multi-billionaire to get lost? LOL

  21. raiderinva says: Apr 1, 2017 9:24 AM

    When did the St Patties Day thing become domestic violence? Did I miss something or are we confusing Zeke with Michael Irvin?

  22. the610limited says: Apr 1, 2017 9:27 AM

    Been there, done that, paid ’em off. No comment.

  23. nyneal says: Apr 1, 2017 9:32 AM

    The folks who have brought up the fact that Jones was photographed with strippers are right. You can still see the photos online.
    One shows Jones in what looks like a bathroom and there’s a woman with her face toward his crotch and the other shows Jones behind a woman with his left hand on her left breast.
    Jones is a puke. He’s worse than Elliott because he’s the owner and is plenty old enough to know better.

  24. mostepicgnar says: Apr 1, 2017 10:10 AM

    Just assign him a babysitter like you had to do for Dez Bryant and keep it moving.

  25. getyourownname says: Apr 1, 2017 10:23 AM

    Both these guys serve as examples of what someone becomes when they are constantly fawned over by everyone around them, no matter what they may do.

  26. pafinfan72 says: Apr 1, 2017 10:38 AM

    Michael Irvin is teaching him well……

  27. boracaydude says: Apr 1, 2017 10:52 AM

    Boys will be Cowboys …

  28. dirtydawg44 says: Apr 1, 2017 10:54 AM

    Better get used to this rhetoric from Jones on Elliott, as he’s typical Buckeye garbage!!! This won’t be the last…

  29. floridaslonechargersfan says: Apr 1, 2017 10:55 AM

    He took the words of the Role Model of the Year (Mike Irvin) to heart and it’s paying off in a big way.

  30. peytonwantsaflag says: Apr 1, 2017 10:55 AM

    Well glad to see there’s so many people eat in this world wanting to protect the honor of virtuous young women.

    Give me a break, they were having fun and she obviously had no issue with it (and in fact looks like purposely constructed her body for just such occasions).

  31. purpleguy says: Apr 1, 2017 11:47 AM

    What Jerry told Elliot in private was that the Cowboys have a special secluded stripper bus for that kind of thing.

  32. donbat67 says: Apr 1, 2017 11:48 AM

    Zeke needs a fall guy , What is Maurice Clarette doin these days ?

  33. steves11 says: Apr 1, 2017 12:37 PM

    “He’s a star in the NFL already, he can do what he wants. There won’t be any repercussions if it’s true”

    The same might have been said about Adrian Peterson, but there were definitely repercussions in his case. Elliott is not immune.

  34. inozwetrust says: Apr 1, 2017 12:38 PM

    He is a superstar so he can do what ever he wants. If Ray Rice was as good as Zeke he’d be playing in the NFL right now.

  35. whatjusthapped says: Apr 1, 2017 1:41 PM

    Jerry should have given him his own first-person advice on how to handle the situation, get the girls on a bus where nobody can record the debauchery and then abuse away. At least Jerry isn’t wasting his millions on liquor and song.

  36. forthegoodofthegame says: Apr 1, 2017 1:47 PM

    Match made in heaven. Can’t take the Texas out of Jones, and can’t take the Columbus out of Elliott. lol

  37. eatme2259 says: Apr 1, 2017 1:53 PM

    Jerry, Michael and Zeke. Need to put some saltpeter in their Gatorade

  38. truthinesshurts says: Apr 1, 2017 2:23 PM

    If you embarrass Roger, you will pay a price, cuz he’s all about Integrity…of his image.

  39. 'boys4life says: Apr 1, 2017 5:06 PM

    Its what Jerry wasn’t saying. He couldn’t tell the reporter that he’s trading Zeke and Romo to the Browns for the number one pick with which they’ll take Garrett from A&M.

  40. laserw says: Apr 1, 2017 10:00 PM

    Anyone who knows and has researched that clown Elliott knows he is damaged goods and a lowlife human being – the Cowboys ignored the evidence of his personal disgusting conduct and will pay for it – that jerk will be so hobbled as a player that he will also take with him the other fraud player, the Danish Ham, Dak, who cannot handle a pass rush.

    I predict that the Cowboys will sink and remain under .500 for years because of the investments in worthless human beings who happened to look like quality players – you don’t get quality when the people playing are worthless.

    Yup, because this has nothing to do with Zeke acting the fool. Get a clue!
