VIDEO: Ezekiel Elliott makes stop at marijuana shop before NFL debut
Ezekiel Elliott finally got to make his NFL debut last night in Seattle.
By all accounts, it went well. The former Ohio State star rushed for 48 yards, he made an impressive hit on Kam Chancellor, and impressed as a blocker in his limited snaps.
But before that happened, Elliott wanted to take in the local scenery in Seattle. One of those stops included stopping at the legal marijuana shop “Herban Legends.”
TMZ has video of Elliott looking around in the store:
For the record, TMZ reported that its sources did not see Elliott make any purchases and he was not embarrassed to be there. As you can see in the video, he even posed with a fan outside of the legal Seattle-based store, which is a common tourist spot.
But the NFL, of course, has anti-marijuana policy.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was not pleased that Elliott was even in the store to begin with.
“Well, I think that in and of itself the reason we are talking about is in a way part of the learning process,” Jones said after the Cowboys’ loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday. “But it’s not good. It’s just not good. It’s just not good.”
It hasn’t been an idea start for the former No. 4 overall pick. Elliott is currently being investigated by Columbus, Ohio’s district attorney’s office for an alleged domestic violence incident involving a former girlfriend. He denied the accusations, but his case is still pending.
Regardless of if Elliott is innocent in that case and if he really was just being a curious tourist, Jones wasn’t happy with his judgment.
“Again, that’s a part of just really getting the big picture here,” Jones said. “No matter if you played at whatever level, there is a picture here of interest. So again, I’m aware of it. I heard the report. I would know how he is, and he needs to look at that. And the other thing is it’s just not good.”
