Cheap Dallas Cowboys Jersey Store 2017

FRISCO, Texas — Jason Witten is in no rush to leave the Dallas Cowboys, despite his name being connected to the head-coaching vacancy at his alma mater of Tennessee.

“Coaching is something I can see myself down the road, having one of those opportunities, but right now I’m all in with this team and my feet are planted firmly here and this opportunity that I have in 2017 and getting it right this week,” Witten said. “And not only that, but I really love this team we have and what we’re trying to build and get it right, right now and for beyond, for the future.
“So I feel too good to think that I’d consider something like that at this point.”

Tennessee backed out of an agreement with Ohio State defensive coordinator Greg Schiano as its next head coach after backlash from the fans. Witten’s name was mentioned as a possibility by outkickthecoverage.com, which said Witten would be willing to leave immediately to take over at his former school.

Witten, 35, who played for the Volunteers from 2000 to ’02, has a strong relationship with Tennessee athletic director John Currie, and he said they have spoken several times throughout the coaching search process but not recently.

“There’s a lot of smart people around him, and they’re working hard to hire and make the right hire to get our program back,” Witten said. “I’m confident that they’ll do that.”

Witten, who signed a four-year extension in the offseason, is in his 15th season with the Cowboys. He owns the franchise records for receptions, receiving yards, most games played, most games started and consecutive games played, while earning Pro Bowl honors 10 times. He is fourth all time in the NFL in receptions, second among tight ends.

Witten has 50 catches for 429 yards and three touchdowns this season.

He said his focus is on Thursday’s game against the Washington Redskins.

“I have this unbelievable opportunity and I love playing, and I think the people around you can say, ‘Oh maybe one day he’ll be a good coach and consider something like that,’” Witten said. “Certainly I can see that happening down the road, but no time soon. I’m enjoying loving what I’m doing right now.”

When the NFL convenes for its Dec. 13 meeting in Irving, Texas, there will be an owners-only session that will deal with the impending extension for commissioner Roger Goodell, sources said Thursday.

The session was scheduled after Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones requested a special meeting in front of the full ownership group on Nov. 28 in New York. The Wall Street Journal first reported Jones’ request. The request was denied, but owners will make time for a session in conjunction with the meeting in Irving, sources said.

Jones and the NFL have gone back and forth about the extension talks that have had both sides threatening legal action. He has said he has issues with compensation in the Goodell deal, along with concerns about the escalation of player protests involving the national anthem and how the league has handled them, and he has denied that his objections are tied to Goodell’s decision to suspend Cowboys star running back Ezekiel Elliott for six games over alleged domestic violence.

On Wednesday, The Associated Press obtained a letter sent to Jones from the compensation committee that accused him of “conduct detrimental to the league’s best interest.”

Jones set the table for the special session when, on Wednesday, he distributed the original contract negotiation document with all 32 teams. He acted on his own after his request of the committee to share the information was rejected Tuesday, sources told ESPN.
The document, which the NFL has characterized as outdated, shows the compensation committee on July 25 first proposed a five-year extension for Goodell that included a pay cut of roughly $2.5 million in his average compensation package of $42 million over the past five years.

Goodell’s lawyer countered in early August with a request for an annual package of salary and bonuses totaling $49.05 million, almost $10 million more than the $39.5 million in salary and bonuses that was proposed by the compensation committee. The request drew the lines for the ongoing negotiations that have been unexpectedly contentious and thus far without an agreement, according to a 26-page analysis of the proposals by the committee’s legal and accounting advisers on Aug. 16 and obtained by ESPN.

There have been no additional formal written offers made by either side, sources told ESPN, but the two sides have had numerous discussions in an attempt to complete negotiations on a contract extension for Goodell that would run through March 2023.

Prior to this document being obtained by ESPN, it was believed Goodell currently makes about $30 million per year. An NFL owner told ESPN earlier this week that there are “several owners in this league who don’t make $40 million a year.”

Some owners have said the new pay package being sought by Goodell is “unseemly” and “offensive.” Goodell’s base salary is $3.5 million — and would remain the same under the new contract — but with bonuses from performance incentives, his total compensation package far exceeds the annual salary of the NFL’s highest-paid player.

According to the document, one of the negotiations’ sticking points is the amount of severance that would be paid to Goodell, who intends to retire early after a new collective bargaining agreement is met and new contracts are signed with the NFL’s TV network partners, the document shows. The committee proposes paying Goodell $40 million upon his resignation as commissioner, while he is seeking $62.5 million, according to the document.

The commissioner also has an agreement to serve as a consultant for five years after leaving the NFL for a lump-sum payment of $19 million, the document shows.

In a story Sunday by Peter King of MMQB.com, Goodell was said to be open to a contract with as much as 88 percent in bonuses, saying, “I’m willing to bet on myself.” But in the analysis of both sides’ initial proposals by Daniel J. Ryterband, the chief executive officer of F.W. Cook, Goodell’s counteroffer “includes language that could be interpreted to mitigate the ability of the committee to adjust pay downward (even if performance is poor).”

Chaired by Falcons owner Arthur Blank, members of the compensation committee met Monday via conference call to discuss the latest developments in their negotiations with Goodell. Sources say the contract is moving toward completion despite protestations from Jones, who has threatened to sue several owners and the NFL if Goodell’s contract is approved without the input and final approval of all 32 owners. At the league’s spring meetings in Chicago in May, all 32 owners voted to give the compensation committee the authority to extend Goodell’s deal beyond its expiration date of March 2019.

Under Goodell’s current contract, there is no provision for a non-disparagement clause. But under Goodell’s proposed contract, he asks for a mutual non-disparagement clause. In an analysis of Goodell’s request, the compensation committee’s lawyers wrote, “Is the NFL … willing to provide a mutual non-disparagement which would include owners and executives? Difficult to ‘police’ owners and executives, but could consider limiting it as a requirement to instruct owners and certain executives not to disparage” Goodell.

Goodell has also asked for an “early expiration” of his contract, after the completion of the CBA and media contract negotiations, which he would not exercise until sometime after March 31, 2022, but before the new contract’s expiration two years later. Goodell has asked for a full year’s bonus in the year he leaves early, which could cost the NFL an additional $21.5 million in bonuses, the documents show.
Among other bonuses that Goodell is seeking is a $25 million “performance bonus” for a new CBA with the players’ union and a new round of contracts with the league’s business partners.

Both Jones and the committee’s outside counsel have accused each side of misleading other owners. Sources say Jones believes Blank has not been entirely transparent in communicating the finite details of negotiations when it comes to the incentives and discretionary bonuses. Jones also has complained to other owners that Goodell’s advantage is that he reappointed Blank as the committee chairman to negotiate a contract that was already “one-sided” in favor of the commissioner. Blank has taken affront to the attack, sources said.

Dallas Cowboys executive Stephen Jones confirmed Monday that Ezekiel Elliott will be training outside the United States during his suspension.

Jones, who made his comments in an interview with 105.3 The Fan in Dallas, didn’t disclose the exact location where the running back is training.

NFL Network first reported the news of Elliott’s plans.
“Actually, I give Zeke credit. This was his idea. He’s wanting to really go to work and not have distractions while he’s not able to play the game. He felt the best way to do that was to get away from this environment … and really work to get himself in the best possible shape,” Jones said.

Jones said Elliott went over his plans with the team’s coaches and strength and conditioning staff, who were comfortable with what they heard.

Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones, Stephen’s father, said Sunday night that he also believed Elliott had a good plan for his time away from the team.

Stephen Jones noted that the Cowboys aren’t permitted to have contact with Elliott during his suspension but was hopeful that the running back will be able to stay in playing shape.

“Certainly it’s not easy when you’re not in a competitive environment, but it sounds like he has a good plan and hopefully one he’ll pull off,” he said.

Elliott, 22, was suspended by commissioner Roger Goodell in August after the league concluded following a yearlong investigation that he had several physical confrontations in the summer of 2016 in Ohio with his girlfriend at the time. The NFL players’ union sued on Elliott’s behalf.

He was able to play in the first eight games through a number of legal decisions, but he lost a temporary administrative stay that kept him on the field in last week’s victory over the Kansas City Chiefs.

The Cowboys missed Elliott in Sunday’s 27-7 loss to the Atlanta Falcons, as the team rushed for 107 yards on 21 carries. Alfred Morris led the Cowboys with 53 yards on 11 carries but had just 8 yards on six first-half carries. Elliott had 783 rushing yards in the first eight games of the season, with four straight games of more than 90 yards on the ground.

He will miss at least the next four games, pending a Dec. 1 hearing, and he is likely to miss the next six.

“He’ll be a better person from this and a better player for us when this is all said and done. It will be a life lesson for him and hopefully he’ll come back and take the next chapter,” Stephen Jones said.

The traffic slog up to AT&T Stadium spares no one, rich or poor, gifted or unathletic, because 100,000 people descending on an area near a baseball stadium and a Six Flags amusement park is destined to be chaos. On opening night for the Dallas Cowboys earlier this month, Richard King took a cab as far as he could, then went the rest of the way on foot.

King works security at a hospital about 1,500 miles away in Pennsylvania, and before he left to see his first Cowboys game, he bought a Jaylon Smith jersey. He loved the young linebacker’s story — how Smith came back from a gruesome knee injury in his final college game — and figured the No. 54 shirt would stand out in a stadium full of Daks and Zekes.
As he approached AT&T Stadium, King heard someone yell, “Yo, 54!” from a white Chevy Tahoe. The man behind the wheel was stuck in traffic too. It was Jaylon Smith.

“If you jump in here,” Smith told King, “I’ll sign that for you.”

Smith and the Cowboys will visit the Cardinals on Monday night. It will mark the first time the linebacker takes the field at the University of Phoenix Stadium since he injured his knee during a bowl game there on New Year's Day 2016.

Smith and the Cowboys will visit the Cardinals on Monday night. It will mark the first time the linebacker takes the field at the University of Phoenix Stadium since he injured his knee during a bowl game there on New Year’s Day 2016.

King thought somebody must be playing a joke on him. But Smith cleared some stuff off his passenger seat, and King hopped in while Smith dug out a Sharpie. He signed the back of the jersey and mugged for pictures with King.

When a couple of Smith’s teammates were told about the encounter this past week, they thought the exchange was cool — up until the part about letting a random fan into the car.

People who know Smith say there’s an innocence about him, an unbreakable faith in people, God and himself. And as King climbed out of the SUV, Smith actually thanked him.

“I didn’t even believe it was happening,” King said.

“He said he was glad to see that people still had faith in him.”
People generally don’t act this way. Jaylon Smith spent 20 months recovering from a shredded knee, and during his rehab last year as a rookie, he smiled every single day. While various media types were writing last year that Smith would never play again, he spoke to about 1,500 men at Gateway Church in Southlake, Texas. Pastor James Lee said it was like a scene from the movie “Braveheart,” and by the time Smith was finished, everyone in the building gave him a standing ovation and was convinced he would be back on the field again in 2017.

Smith not only recovered from a torn anterior cruciate ligament, a torn lateral collateral ligament and a stretched nerve in his knee; he is starting at middle linebacker for Dallas and currently leads the team with 23 tackles, according to the coaches’ breakdown.

On Monday night, he’ll travel back to University of Phoenix Stadium, where he suffered the injury 632 days ago that changed his life. Yet Smith said he has put no thought into the significance of the venue for the game between the Cowboys and the Arizona Cardinals.

To give you an idea of how little his family has thought about it, his older brother, Rod Smith, a backup running back for the Cowboys, didn’t even remember that the Cardinals’ home field was where Jaylon suffered the injury that dropped him from a top-five pick to completely off the board for some teams.

As of Thursday, there were no plans for their parents to attend the game.

“It’s something in the past,” Rod said. “He’s beaten those odds.”

The Cowboys reportedly had planned to put him on sort of a pitch count in the preseason, but then they wound up in schemes that favored Smith in the season opener against the New York Giants. He looked good, recording seven tackles and a forced fumble. He has progressed enough to take away playing time from veteran Justin Durant.

When asked whether he was surprised that Smith was playing so much so early in the season, Cowboys defensive coordinator Rod Marinelli said, “Nothing surprises me.”

“He’s gaining ground with every step. He’s got really extraordinary talent. He’s really fast. He’s learning. He hustles and does all the things right, and he’s going to get better every week.”
Before that life-altering day in Arizona, Smith, an All-American for Notre Dame, had never been seriously hurt. He had never missed a game, never missed a practice, in high school or college. While some seniors or players who are declaring for the draft don’t fly home with the team after a bowl game, Smith rode back with his teammates.

He spent the first couple of days at the Morris Inn, a hotel on the South Bend, Indiana, campus. Michael Bertsch, Notre Dame’s director of football media relations, was one of the first people to check in on him. Bertsch is 41, with a 1-year-old son, and he can’t imagine how he would handle something like that. Smith was sitting on the bed, his leg propped up, and Bertsch tried to console him.

But there was no need.

“I just can’t wait to get started on getting back,” Smith told Bertsch.

Smith would drop 20 pounds from his 245-pound body and vomit from the effects of anesthesia. When he eventually got back on his feet and posted video of himself moving around, it was one of those “That poor guy” moments for his doubters.

He flunked some NFL physicals in February, but even then, Fighting Irish coach Brian Kelly was convinced that Smith, who declared early for the draft, would be back to playing football. Kelly told coaches and general managers that, and some listened. Others didn’t. He sat in his office for an interview with ESPN.com in the winter of 2016, predicting that Smith would be a star in the NFL.

Kelly has been coaching for 27 years, and he said he has never seen someone like Smith, someone who set the entire tempo for everyone at practice — a linebacker, no less — someone who so greatly touched an entire team.

“When we talk about this young man, unique’s not even the right word,” Kelly said. “He’s got incredible grit. He loves life, and he loves the challenges of it.”

The Cowboys seemed to be one of the few teams who listened. It helped that their team doctor, Dan Cooper, performed Smith’s surgery just after the Fiesta Bowl. But even Cooper couldn’t guarantee that the nerve would fully regenerate.

Still, Dallas selected Smith in the second round, and the NFL — and a fan base — held their collective breath and hoped.

Rehab can be a place where people might tend to feel sorry for themselves. Injured players keep schedules similar to that of their teammates, arriving at the team facility at 6 a.m., putting in six or seven hours of sometimes grueling work, but knowing they have no chance to play.

Cowboys defensive end Charles Tapper also was drafted in 2016, and like Smith, he spent the year on injured reserve with a bad back. The isolation from the team could be depressing, Tapper said. You’re with the team by virtue of being in the same building, but you’re not really with the team.

Smith, the proverbial long shot of the injured players, was the one lifting Tapper up.

Smith ran through drills as hard and as fast as he could, and soon it became a competition. If one guy came up an inch or two short of the line, they ran again. Tapper said it took his rehab to another level.

“He’s almost like a robot,” Tapper said. “We’d be in the weight room, and … I’m like, man, this guy is not human.”

“I’ve never seen him upset, never seen him talk bad about anybody,” Tapper added. “He never talks bad about anything. I would come in some days and I’d say, ‘Man, I’ve got my mom and my brother and all this stuff,’ and he’s like, ‘Hey, Tap, it’s going to be all good.’ We loved competing against each other, but then we’d come back and sit and talk. Once we did those things, I’m like, ‘Man, this is a real guy right there.’”

Maliek Collins was also part of the Cowboys’ 2016 draft class, also wound up injured last year and also fell under the spell of Smith. At one point, Collins asked Smith how he stays so positive. Smith would tell his fellow injured teammates, “Man, we’ve got the opportunity to still be Cowboys. We can still be great.”

“He just kept faith though the process,” Collins said. “I respect the hell out of him.”
Smith is declining one-on-one interviews right now. His publicist said he wants to focus solely on football but that Smith politely says thank you for your interest. The Cowboys want it this way now, anyway. Maybe they don’t want to put too much on a 22-year-old who has been through so much and is essentially a rookie.

He does not fit into the personality mold of some of his other marquee teammates.

On Thursday, for example, receiver Dez Bryant stood on a cameraman’s ladder, holding court as he acted like a character from “Game of Thrones.”

Running back Ezekiel Elliott deflected the latest controversy, which centered on whether he quit on a play in a loss at Denver.

Smith was nowhere to be found in the locker room. But he was coerced into doing a group interview on Saturday.

“Everything I’ve done has been a part of the plan, you know what I mean?” Smith said. “The rehab, the training prior to getting back out on the field in OTAs, camp, all of that stuff is tougher than going out playing, quite frankly. We work pretty hard, very hard, so the game is all about going out there and having fun.

“We’ve been playing the game since we were 7 years old, so that’s kind of the joy and the relief to be able to go out there and play. For me, I love performing at a high level, so that’s what I’ll continue to do.”

The nerve injury gave Smith a drop foot, which essentially means that he could not pick up his left foot on his own. Smith still wears a brace on the foot, and it’s unclear how long he’ll need it. During training camp, Sports Illustrated reported that his nerve was 80 percent regenerated.

But Cowboys linebackers coach Matt Eberflus said he “doesn’t mess around with percentages.” He just said he expects Smith to keep getting better as he gets healthier and learns more on the job.

“His attitude is positive, and it’s very contagious,” Eberflus said. “Guys, I think, are drawn to him because of that.”

In some ways, things have worked out. Rod and Jaylon Smith are playing together. They never had the chance to do that in high school or college. As kids in Fort Wayne, Indiana, their dad, Roger, whom Rod calls “Pops,” had them run for five miles around a development called Village Woods. They were 6 or maybe 7 years old. Sometimes, Rod said, they couldn’t have supper until they had run.

The siblings spend a lot of time with each other now. Rod draws the line on living together; a man has to have his own space. Besides, this is Jaylon’s first chance to have his own apartment.
About the only drawback of having Jaylon in Dallas, Rod said, is that it means more reporters want to talk to him.

“I mean, I’m a chill dude,” Rod said.

But Rod loves talking about his brother. He loves being around Jaylon. After the Sept. 17 loss at Denver, Rod sat silently at his locker while Jaylon answered questions about the defense. Then they boarded a bus to the airport together. Getting the chance to be together in Dallas was a big surprise for Rod. A welcome surprise. His brother’s comeback? That wasn’t shocking at all. Rod had faith. Just like Jaylon.

“Me, I expected it,” Rod said. “Injury or not, I just know what he’s about.”

Suspension of damage Cowboys’ pass, but open the opportunity

OXNARD, Calif. — Football coaches like to say that injuries present opportunities for other players. While that is true for the Dallas Cowboys, suspensions also present opportunities.

Randy Gregory is out for the season because of multiple violations of the NFL’s substance-abuse policy. David Irving will miss the first four games of the season after violating the league’s policy on performance-enhancing drugs. Damontre Moore will miss the first two games because of a substance-abuse policy investigation.

Tyrone Crawford and Taco Charlton each could see their responsibilities increase given the suspensions across the Cowboys' defense.

Tyrone Crawford and Taco Charlton each could see their responsibilities increase given the suspensions across the Cowboys’ defense.

Gregory’s suspension might have led to the Cowboys adding Moore in the offseason as a free agent, but all three would have been valuable parts to a defensive line rotation in 2017.

Gregory played in just 13 games in his first two seasons, mostly because of suspensions. He has recorded just one sack, but the Cowboys had hoped things would eventually work out to where the former second-round pick would get a chance to play again. Nobody knows for sure if that will happen. The team can have only minimal contact with him during the suspension. (He is eligible to return after the season.)

The Cowboys knew Moore’s suspension was a possibility because of an arrest last December when he played for the Seattle Seahawks, but Irving’s suspension was a surprise.

“I winded up taking some products that had a banned substance,” Irving said. “The substance wasn’t listed on the bottle. It happens, and it happened to me. You live, learn and move on.”

Moore apologized for his mistake

“I made my bed, and I’ve got to lie it in,” he said. “I just wanted to apologize to the Cowboys organization and the fans for my past even following me. I also want to show them by coming here and working hard each and every day that I’m here to make the best of this opportunity.”

Gregory is not allowed at training camp, but Irving and Moore can practice and play in preseason games. Starting the first week of the season they will be banished. And that has created opportunity.

So far in camp, Tyrone Crawford and DeMarcus Lawrence have lined up as the starting left and right defensive ends. Benson Mayowa, who led the Cowboys in sacks last year with six, has been working at right defensive end in the nickel defense. The Cowboys drafted Taco Charlton in the first round to help the pass rush immediately. With the suspensions, they will count on him even more.

Charles Tapper did not play as a rookie in 2016 because of a back injury. The Cowboys hope his speed can help them get to the quarterback. Lenny Jones, Lewis Neal and Richard Ash may not have had the cleanest routes to making it at the start of camp, but the losses of Moore and Irving open a spot on the roster, if not two.

“I like our depth that we’ve got in the defensive front as far as some of the guys that won’t be with us early there,” team owner and general manager Jerry Jones said. “That’s promising.”

But the Cowboys don’t have that “war daddy” he craves so badly.

“Let me say this, there’s parts of one out there, I know that,” Jones said. “Now it may take three of them to get him, but he’s out there. I’m talking about the rotation of the numbers. I like our numbers. I see how we can play. Some of the greatest successes that I’ve had with the Cowboys was when we’ve had a defensive line rotation. I’ve always looked for the promise of that.”

Ezekiel Elliott, Jerry Jones not worried about new allegations

CLEVELAND — With another allegation involving a former girlfriend coming to light over the weekend, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and owner/general manager Jerry Jones said they were not concerned these issues keep coming up.

Elliott simply said “no” when asked if he was concerned following the Cowboys’ 35-10 win against the Cleveland Browns, in which he rushed for 92 yards and two touchdowns.

On Sunday, Jones reiterated that he is not worried about Elliott possibly being suspended at some point this season.

“Everything, everything that I know regarding any of Zeke’s behavior makes me satisfied that we don’t have any issues,” Jones said. “And I know about all of those things. I know everything, yes, there’s been nothing, nothing that I didn’t know about that anybody has brought up. I’m very comfortable that I’ve got Zeke’s full story. I’m real comfortable. And we haven’t been worried about that since training camp.”

According to USA Today, which cited an incident report, police in Aventura, Florida, were called to Elliott’s apartment to investigate an altercation with a woman in February.

The alleged incident involved the same woman who made a domestic abuse claim against Elliott in July. The NFL’s investigation is ongoing; however, prosecutors in Ohio declined to press charges over the summer in a domestic violence case, citing conflicting and inconsistent evidence.

In the February incident, the accuser alleged that Elliott, who was training in Florida, had pushed her against a wall, which resulted in left shoulder pain, according to the report. There were no physical signs of injury and no independent witnesses.

Elite Ezekiel Elliott Jersey

Dallas Cowboys rookie Ezekiel Elliott(Ezekiel Elliott Jersey) has been accused of domestic violence but has denied the allegation.

A woman who says she’s Elliott’s former live-in girlfriend has accused the former Ohio State star of assaulting her multiple times over the past week, according to police reports filed Friday morning in Columbus, Ohio, and obtained by ESPN.

Elliott, who turned 21 on Friday, denied assaulting the woman and told police that he never lived with her. He has not been arrested or charged with a crime.

The Cowboys are aware of the police reports but have not officially commented. The NFL will review the case under its personal conduct policy, a league representative told ESPN.

The woman, identified as Tiffany Thompson, told police that Elliott assaulted her while they sat in a parked car early Friday morning, according to one police report. She told police that she had pain in her right wrist and a red mark but declined medical treatment, according to the report.

Four witnesses, including one who was sitting in the car at the time of the alleged incident, told police that they did not observe an assault.

Thompson also accused Elliott of striking her “several times” and “leaving bruises on her arms” over a five-day period from Saturday to Wednesday, according to a second police report. Elliott, however, told police that he never touched Thompson in “a harmful manner,” saying she suffered the bruises during a bar fight.

Thompson told police that she lived with Elliott for about three months, but the running back said that he only paid for her rent and co-signed on her vehicle.

Columbus police have referred Thompson to the prosecutor’s office, citing “conflicting statements” between Elliott, the woman and witnesses along with “the inability at the time of the report to prove recent co-habitation.”

Elliott’s father, Stacy Elliott, released a statement Friday afternoon, saying his son “has done nothing wrong.”

“The reported allegations and Internet postings regarding our son are completely false,” Stacy Elliott said. “Ezekiel has done nothing wrong. The police have investigated this matter and eyewitnesses have verified the lack of any wrongdoing. The actual evidence in this matter clearly indicates what the real motivation was behind the police being called. We are confident that when the truth comes to light it will reveal the falsity of these claims. Ezekiel has been fully cooperative with the police and will continue to do so — along with cooperating with the NFL — moving forward.”

ESPN typically does not release the names of alleged domestic violence victims, but Thompson, 20, posted Instagram photos Friday showing bruises on her body. One of her posts was tagged to Elliott.

Thompson’s Instagram account was made private later Friday morning.

The Cowboys selected Elliott with the No. 4 overall pick in this year’s draft. Elliott rushed for more than 1,800 yards in each of the past two seasons at Ohio State and scored 41 touchdowns over that stretch.

Elliot’s No. 21 jersey with the Cowboys has been the top-selling jersey on NFLShop.com over the past three months, based on sales from April 1 to June 30.
