Ezekiel Elliott Reportedly Likely to Appeal Suspension

Dallas Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott's father speaks out on suspension

According to documents obtained by NFL.com, Elliott actually filed an official incident report alleging harassment with Frisco (Texas) Police on September 5, 2016 against Tiffany Thompson, identified by the league as his alleged victim.

He posted a screen shot of some excerpts from the report, with a caption that read, "My son's legal team is ready to fight!"

The claim that will be argued by the Elliott legal team will attempt to suggest Elliott's ex-girlfriend Tiffany Thompson, connected to Elliott in this legal issue, had threatened to ruin his career prior to the alleged assaults by the running back. Of course, it's uncertain whether an arbitrator will agree. "You will see. If I was you, I wouldn't go out tonight". "And not be a dumb man. B-, keep (messing) with the wrong, b-". "They are not going to believe you".

Elliott reported the claim one day before Columbus Police announced it would not press charges against Elliott, though the incident happened two days before that. The league was aware of the Frisco incident report while determining the length of Elliott's suspension, per Rapoport, but the running back feels that it-and other factors that, in his eyes, should undermine Thompson's credibility-were not weighted heavily enough. ". During the upcoming weeks and through this appeal a slew of additional credible and controverting evidence will come to light". No charges were filed, but the National Football League had its own investigation, which also included an incident at a St. Patrick's Day parade. "When viewed together with the July incidents, it suggests a pattern of poor judgment and behavior for which effective intervention is necessary for your personal and professional welfare", the letter said.
