Emmitt Smith Bothered by Ezekiel Elliott Comparisons

While it could be easy to compare NFL legend Emmit Smith to Ezekiel Elliott since both men have been running backs for the Dallas Cowboys, Smith wants the comparisons to end there. He’s tired of people comparing Elliott’s current roundabout with Jerry Jones to his 1993 contract negotiations.

Smith says that he’s bothered by the comparisons because, unlike Elliott, he actually fulfilled his contractual duties with Dallas ahead of the 1993 NFL season. He didn’t hold up any Cowboys work by waiting until week 2 to return to Dallas. Elliott has been “holding out” from training camp until he gets the money that he wants.
