REPORT: $8M Guaranteed In Elliott’s Contract Voided After 6-Game Suspension
The fallout from Ezekiel Elliott’s six game suspension continues, as NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport reported that the Dallas Cowboys running back is going to be a little lighter in the pockets this year. That’s because he will have over $8 million in guaranteed money on his contract voided as a result of the suspension.

After a lengthy investigation into a domestic violence claim from his ex-girlfriend, the league announced the suspension of Elliott on Friday, citing a violation of its personal conduct policy.
As a result of the guaranteed money being voided, the Cowboys could actually release Elliott at any time without owing him another dime.
It was also revealed that Elliott pulling a woman’s shirt down at a St. Patrick’s Day parade back in March factored into the investigation and suspension as well.
