The NFL wants football to be a global sport, and Ezekiel Elliott is doing his part to help make that happen.

Elliott and several other Cowboys are conducting a youth football camp in Mexico, in conjunction with the National Fantasy Football Convention. Elliott, coincidentally, spent his six-week, league-imposed suspension in Mexico last year.

Joining Elliott are Jaylon Smith, Taco Charlton, Anthony Brown and Kavon Frazier, and former Cowboy (current Raider) Keith Smith.

“It’s no secret that football is a growing around the world and we’re thrilled to play a part in spreading the game to our friends south of the border,” NFFC CEO Andy Alberth said, via Clarence Hill of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “We take immense pride in making the yearly convention a Disneyland for football fans and can’t think of a better way to bring that same joy to kids that may not normally get the best exposure to America’s new pastime.”

The NFFC’s second convention will happen from July 13-15 in Dallas, and it will feature more than 200 NFL players.

  1. Aren’t their American citizen children worth putting on a free camp instead of pandering to Mexican brats?

    Wow racist much?

  3. It’s very refreshing to see NFL players, especially Zeke staying out of trouble and doing good things for kids even though it is in another country.

    Keep up the good work Zeke & stay out of trouble, the Boys are counting on you big time this up coming season.

  4. Prescott made a guest appearance. His first pass was picked off by an 8 year old in an eagles jersey and taken to the HOOOUUUUUSSE !

    Why do people always think it’s “racist” to put America first? Is it racist to put America ahead of Canada? No. Is it racist to put America ahead of France? No. But oh heavens, America ahead of Mexico, oh dear, soooo racist…. give it a rest with the racism
    ———————————————————————————

    Maybe it’s due to this current racist president hatred for Mexico have something to do with it. Has this president even mentioned one time building a wall across the great white nation of Canada? Open your eyes a bit.

  6. How come the NFL is talking about putting a team across the ocean instead of Mexico? Do they have a problem with Mexico? What problem would that be?

  7. It isn’t a hatred for Mexico. You’re so brainwashed. It’s a hatred of ILLEGAL ENTRY into our country. My wife and her family came to America from another country. And they did it LEGALLY. It was a long process. It was hard. And it is a gigantic SLAP IN THE FACE to her, her family, and all the families just like hers that came here the right way. Where are the sanctuary cities protecting Canadians? Exactly. If people were sneaking into your back yard and taking up residence, would you put a fence around your front yard, or would you put it around your back yard. We both know the answer, but you’re too hypocritical to be honest about it. All of you in favor of illegal immigration should help solve the problem by putting g your name and address on a huge data base. And when people fcome here illegally, and need a place to stay, they will know you have room for them. You want them here, you handle it. Fair? And those that support LEGAL immigration won’t have to worry about. You house them, feed them, put them on your medical insurance. All of the things you obligate me to pay for. You pay for it. You handle it. And I will change my mind about ILLEGAL immigration

  8. The underprivileged children in the United States of America, you know the place where you live that offers you an incredible job for incredible money say thanks for thinking of us.

    Such a Good Troll. Every Cowboys tread ‘It” and “its” Troll friends come bashing Dakota. Your so predictable. Sad funny and no football IQ, … and predictable.
    Boy this cat “The Tooth” loves him some COWBOYS and PRESCOTT! He isnt going to the CHEATERS bro, give it a rest! In LOVE much? sheeeesh.

  10. Cowboys players go do an NFL-spreading goodwill trip to Mexico and you imbeciles get into a Donald Trump debate in the comments. Good lord.

  11. Yup, very predictable comments. For people with the real knowledge they might already know crossing the border by Mexicans is the lowest in years. People who are crossing are fleeing rape and violence from South America thanks to policies America has with them. In reality, the vast majority of illegals come from Asia, Africa and other Countries that overstay work visas. Where is your anger when Trump enforces laws that leave his interests intact? Like the heavy use of Romanians at his resorts on work visas who get treated like dogs rather than hiring real Americans. If that is news to you, it’s because you haven’t done your homework. It’s easy to divide people. It’s the most basic form of stoking fear and making the world a zero sum game. It’s the type of politics that overload your frontal cortex and caused fear. Fight or flight mentality.

  12. Sounds like they are preparing the Canelo tainted mexican meat excuse if they test positive for a certain PED.

    Unlike our previous President, Trump stands up for America and places
    America’s needs first. Contrast this to Obama going on a world tour to apologize for America’s success. And just what kind of fool does it take to believe that America can simply allow foreigners to steam into the country and start living on the dole.

  18. Jeez, this is an article about a youth football camp and the discourse is all political. Can we do this on another website please?

    Imagine how excited the kids are. They are running around in circles with their fists in the air. They don’t have much down there. Bad-mouth me or thumb me down if you wish. It is okay.

    R U serious? Yes, your man Trump has bent over for Putin. And yes if you can actually find real facts about brown illegal people living off the dole please enlighten me, because I know far too many brown people working 3 jobs. Educate yourself, dude. Obama’s world apology tour? Do you mean FoxNews showing Obama bow to Saudi princes while Jared has an all night slumber party with the guy who just took over while throwing his relatives in prison? Is Trump standing up for America while he lets Turkish forces kill the Kurds who actually stood up against ISIS? Please enlighten me how Trump wants to rip up a nuclear arms deal with Iran while ignoring Russia is working hand in hand with them. Like I said. Do your homework…

  20. What the heck does this article have to do with immigration? Racists who hate brown people are injecting their politics into this thread.

    And the typical response to that is, “I only oppose ILLEGAL immigration!” Oh really? Then why does your President want to reduce LEGAL immigration, insult countries full of brown people with language that I can’t use here, complain about LEGAL chain migration, while simultaneously helping Melania chain migrate her very own parents here?

    Racism is not a good immigration policy.

    Apparently we need to spend a lot more resources on teaching American citizens English.

    Imagine kids here in America who would love to have a chance, just as much as those Mexican kids. Why why why do liberals want to play hero to the poor and unfortunate of ANY other place than America? By the way Pelosi and the Snowflake brigade decided our vets won’t be getting any additional financial help. As a Democrat myself it makes me sick how Obama single handedly destroyed the youth of our country in 8 years by brain washing them with lies.
