Report: $8M guaranteed in Elliott’s contract voided after suspension

The repercussions of Ezekiel Elliott‘s six-game suspension continue to mount, as Ian Rapoport of NFL Network is reporting that the Dallas Cowboys running back will also have over $8 million in guaranteed money on his contract voided as a result of the ban.

The NFL announced Elliott’s suspension Friday after an investigation that spanned more than a year, citing a violation of its personal conduct policy. With all guaranteed money voided, the Cowboys could release the second-year back at any time, should they choose to, without owing him another cent.

The NFL’s investigation determined that despite never being charged with a crime, Elliott likely used physical force causing injuries to an Ohio woman whom he was in a relationship with at the time.

A separate incident involving Elliott pulling a woman’s shirt down at a St. Patrick’s Day parade in March was also part of the investigation, but ultimately didn’t factor into the ruling despite a letter to Elliott from the NFL scolding him for actions that “reflected a lack of respect for women.”
