Wednesday was a good one for both recently drafted running back Ezekiel Elliott and the Dallas Cowboys. The rookie officially inked his first NFL deal this afternoon. Elliott shared a photo of himself signing the contract via Twitter, verifying that the deal was finally “official.”
His deal is worth an incredible 24.9 million dollars, and his fellow former teammates look like they want a piece of it.
Cardale Jones, Elliott’s former quarterback who was drafted by the Buffalo Bills this year, jokingly mentioned him in a tweet, asking Elliott for five dollars that he has apparently owed him for a while now.
After Cardale Jones reached out to Elliott, his former roommate at Ohio State, Tyvis Powell, also joined in on the fun.
$24.9 million is a huge chunk of change for one person though, so we really can’t blame them for trying to get in on the cash. Time to pay up, Elliott.
