Ezekiel Elliott celebrates NFL’s relaxed celebration rules

Ezekiel Elliott didn’t get fined last season for his leap into the oversized Salvation Army red kettle, which sits in Jerry’s end zone during the holidays. But the Cowboys running back did draw a 15-yard penalty in the game against the Bucs.

It’s uncertain under the new relaxed celebration rules whether officials would flag Elliott for that during the 2017 season. Elliott, though, is happy to see the league ease up on touchdown celebration penalties.

I think it’s great,” Elliott said Thursday, via Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News. “I think it’s definitely needed in pro football. I think there’s going to be some pretty funny celebrations this year.”

Elliott, who hosted a two-day youth football camp in DFW, talked on several other subjects, including:

Posing nude for the cover of ESPN the Magazine’s “Body Issue”: “The photo shoot was great. It was definitely a good experience. At first it was a little awkward, but you get warmed up to it. I’m definitely glad I did it.”

On his relationship with quarterback Dak Prescott: “It’s great to be able to come in with a rookie that kind of got everything thrown at him the same way you did. It also helps that we’re really good friends, we’re basically best friends after a year of knowing him. We have each other to use as tools to get through this.”

    Not a fan of relaxing the celebration rules.
    They do enough dancing as it is…

    Shouldn’t it really only be a story if a player DOESN’T celebrate the relaxed celebration rules?

    Elliott was lucky he didn’t get his bell rung by the Salvation Army.

    “Hosted a two day youth football camp” in which one of his topics of discussion was posing nude” Nice.

    Perhaps he should practice his gimmicks in a mock jail cell so that he can perfect his craft since he’s going there within five years. It is queer that he still has the stench of abuse against women hanging over his head – a wide receiver in Washington a few years ago was able to refute the charges that were fabricated rather easily. I guess the bearded jerk in Dallas can’t because the charges are for real!
