Ezekiel Elliott posts apology note following meeting with Goodell
Ezekiel Elliott sent an apology note on social media Tuesday after meeting with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell earlier in the day.
The Dallas Cowboys running back met with Goodell over his May incident in Las Vegas at a music festival. Elliott was handcuffed and detained briefly by Las Vegas police after pushing a security guard to the ground. The guard declined to press charges but later seemed upset about the way Elliott’s camp was handling things.
Following his meeting with Goodell, Elliott sent this note:

The public apology could be an indication that Elliott will avoid further discipline from the league under its Personal Conduct Policy over the incident. Zeke’s history of missteps with the league, combined with his previous six-game suspension from Goodell, is likely what led to Goodell’s extra interest in the matter.
The Cowboys previously said the incident would not impact their contract talks with the two-time rushing leader.
