Ezekiel Elliot may be getting sick of the extra attention.
Meeting with reporters on Tuesday, the Dallas Cowboys rookie running back wanted to spin the conversation away from his play and onto his teammates.
“We’re going to start these Eric Dickerson questions again,” he asked a crowd of reporters.
“You guys want to write stories about the rookie rushing record and it’s about this team, honestly, it’s not about a record, that’s not what we’re focused on,” Elliot added. “We’re a team and honestly I don’t want any attention being put towards that, it should be about this team and it should be about these guys, it should be about our relationship, it shouldn’t be about records.”
At his current pace this season, Elliott is headed toward a 1,874-yard campaign – which would be a new rookie rushing record, surpassing Dickerson’s mark of 1,808.
So whether he likes it or not, those questions are still going to keep coming.
