Ezekiel Elliott is one of the best running backs in the NFL and he wants to be paid like it. Just last week, it was revealed that Elliott wasn't at training camp and that he has been holding out until he gets more money. This decision has garnered some widespread criticism from football analysts, while fellow players are applauding the running back for standing up for himself and knowing his worth. Regardless of how you feel about Zeke's decision, there is no denying that this is a tricky situation for the Dallas Cowboys who run the majority of their offense through Elliott.
Former Cowboys player Michael Irving has been one of the people on Zeke's side and today, he went on First Take to debate Stephen A. Smith about Elliott's holdout. Smith is on the side of the executives here, saying that Elliott should just play since he's hurting his team. Irvin strongly disagrees with this assessment and got so angry at Smith, that he stood up and started shouting.
