Ezekiel Elliott's attorneys NOT trying to settle
Despite a report this morning from ESPN stating that Ezekiel Elliott's attorneys are "trying to settle case with NFL," legal sources directly involved with the case say there is no truth to this report. Elliott who is represented by the NFL Players Association is not exploring settlement options for a reduced suspension at this juncture. I have confirmed that Elliott's personal attorneys are also not involved in any settlement talks either. It is unclear where ESPN received this information but I am hearing no one in his direct camp or legal team would give such information. Attorneys for the Cowboys have not commented as of yet on the topic but the Cowboys attorneys would represent the team and are not Elliott's attorneys referenced by the ESPN article. According to sources, Elliott's position remains the same, that he is looking to clear his name and not interested in serving any suspension.
