Former players have been criticizing Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott for his decision-making skills after an incident last weekend in which the former Ohio State standout pulled down a woman’s shirt, exposing her breast, while watching a St. Patrick’s Day parade. Former LSU standout — and SEC Network analyst — Marcus Spears is among those players.
Spears recently went on 103.3 FM ESPN Dallas radio and criticized Elliott for his behavior.
“The guy’s just gotta stop being dumb, man,” Spears said, according to the Dallas Morning News. “That’s really what it boils down to.”
After playing at LSU, Spears spent eight of his nine seasons in the NFL with the Cowboys.
Elliott is under an NFL investigation for domestic violence allegations made against him last year. The Columbus, Ohio, attorney’s office declined to pursue charges “because of conflicting and inconsistent information.”
Elliott had a strong rookie season for the Cowboys in 2016, rushing for 1,631 yards and 15 touchdowns in helping Dallas win the NFC East. But there have also been these off-the-field issues.
