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.

About time, I've been waiting on that 5 dollars too long, pay up lol congrats 😤💯 https://t.co/4eqOkyD9m5

After Cardale Jones reached out to Elliott, his former roommate at Ohio State, Tyvis Powell, also joined in on the fun.

I'm waiting on u to sign, so u can tell me I ain't gotta pay my half of the rent anymore. Lol https://t.co/FsaYa50ryH

$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.
