Elliott apparently didn't make any purchases, but Cowboys owner Jerry Jones was still not happy with the running back's decision.
Before taking the field against the Seahawks in Thursday’s preseason game, Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott reportedly made a visit to another popular Seattle venue.
Elliott was seen browsing Thursday afternoon at Herban Legends, a marijuana store in Belltown, according to TMZ. He apparently didn’t make any purchases, which is a good thing because marijuana, despite being legal in the state of Washington, is still on the list of substances banned by the NFL.
Still, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones wasn’t happy with Elliott’s decision to stop by the marijuana shop.
“Well, I think that, in and of itself, the reason we are talking about it is in a way part of the learning process,” Jones told Clarence E. Hill Jr. of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “But it’s not good. It’s just not good. It’s just not good.”
Jones has reason to be concerned about the optics of the situation, as the Cowboys are already without defensive end Randy Gregory for the first 10 games of the season due to a suspension for marijuana use.
