With the NFL season about a month and some change away, players have started reporting to training camp so that they can get in some reps with their teams and also learn the playbook. This is a crucial time of year as it allows players to build chemistry and camaraderie before embarking on a 16-game season that will test the determination of every single player on the field. Sometimes though, players don't report to training camp because they are holding out for more money. This is the case for Ezekiel Elliott of the Dallas Cowboys. The running back has exceeded expectations on his rookie contract and now, he's looking to get paid.
Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has held firm on not offering Elliott a new contract and even said that the team doesn't need a star running back to win a Super Bowl. One person who certainly knows a lot about running backs is none other than OJ Simpson who as you would expect, disagrees with Jones' assessment.
