Ezekiel Elliott just became the highest-paid running back in the NFL and with his new money, he decided to give back!
Ezekiel Elliott just signed on to another season with the Dallas Cowboys making him the highest-paid running back in the NFL.
His 6-year $90 million extension is massive and the team, as well as his fans, are happy he’s staying in Texas.
Now with this new contract, Elliott decided that he would be generous and give back in a major way to charity. In a press conference, he shared that he would be giving $100K to the Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army is an organization that has worked with the NFL in the past. In fact, if you recall in a past season, Elliott actually jumped into a massive Salvation Army bucket after scoring a touchdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
“In my time here in Dallas, I’ve formed a really good relationship with the Salvation Army,” Elliott explained. “And, I wanted to pledge $100,000 to help them build their new facility to help support the people of need in Dallas.”
Looks like after being scolded about jumping into the bucket, he wanted to pay the Salvation Army back in a major way!
