Ezekiel Elliott has had his name in the news for everything except what he has done on the football field. He recently received a six-game suspension from the NFL for his role in multiple incidents this past offseason.
Elliott doesn’t seem too worried about it though.
TMZ caught Elliott chilling on a boat down in Texas on his off day and the former Ohio State Buckeye didn’t seem too concerned about the optics of his presence there.

TMZ sources said that Elliott wasn’t drinking on the boats and was mostly just hanging out with friends. An Elliott representative told TMZ that it was the team’s off day and that it isn’t a big deal that he was present.
If there is anything that the NFL and its fans hate, it is players being on a boat for any reason whatsoever during the season. Even if it is the preseason.
Elliott’s appeal case will take place on August 29, which is a day that many will circle on their calendar as the NFLPA and NFL will surely go to battle over the validity of the suspension. Don’t expect it to be a clean battle as the league and union have long disagreed with various suspensions given to the NFL’s players.
