Ezekiel Elliott Makes A Daring Bet With Hall Of Famer Eric Dickerson

 

When Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott returns from his suspension in Week 16’s game against the Seattle Seahawks, he’s going to need a big game.

 Not to help the Cowboys make the postseason as the 7-6 Cowboys have been all but eliminated. No, he’s going to literally need to hit the ground running because of bet he made with another great running back: Hall of Famer Eric Dickerson.

“Me and him have a personal bet for when he comes back,” Dickerson said. “He says that he’s going to get 200 yards in his return. I told him ‘no,’ that he ain’t going to get 200 yards. So the bet is that if he gets 200 yards, I have to give him one of my jerseys. It’s going to be one of my special jerseys that I played in. And if he doesn’t get 200 yards, then he has to give me a jersey he played in. And if he does, then I have to wear his jersey on air sometime.”

Okay maybe it’s not the high stakes you’d expect from a par of wealthy athletes like them, but when it comes to pride, you can’t put a price on that.

Not to mention, Elliott has done some spectacular things on the field in his career. But a 200-yard day would be the first of his pro career.

And the highlight of a bumpy Cowboys season.
