Ezekiel Elliott mysteriously fumes over ‘respect’ after Dak Prescott’s failed deal
The wrong Dallas Cowboy is angry Thursday morning.
A day after Dak Prescott did not get his big-money extension from the Cowboys, running back Ezekiel Elliott furiously took to Twitter to express his mysterious feelings of disrespect.
“There are a lot of great backs in this league but I don’t understand why the media has to talk down on my game just to uplift other backs,” the 24-year-old said. “We all are talented football players and can play ball.”
His vent follows the Tennessee Titans’ long-term extension with running back Derrick Henry. Just before the NFL franchise tag deadline, Henry signed a four-year for $50 million with $25.5 million guaranteed, according to ESPN. A possible source of frustration could be the new Madden ratings that put Elliott tied for third among running backs with a 92 rating. Henry is the second-highest rated running back in Madden with a 93 rating.
“Check the stats,” Elliott, who signed a six-year, $90 million extension last offseason, tweeted.
“Since I entered this league I have dominated year in, year out. Put some RESPECT on my name. Women lie. Men lie. The stats don’t. Go do your homework. Almost 1800 scrimmage yards and 14 TD’s with no training camp and now I’m not the same back. I do appreciate the standard you guys hold me to though lol. But I promise you no one holds me to a higher standard than myself.”
Elliott has 5,406 rushing yards, 1,619 receiving yards and 48 total touchdowns across his four NFL seasons.
Prescott, meanwhile, will play the 2020 NFL season on the one-year, $31.4 million franchise-tag tender he signed.
