Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott was really in the giving mood this holiday season. Last week, Elliott showed his appreciation for his offensive linemen by buying eight John Deere 855D S4 Crossovers, which start at $16,099 each. Then, Zeke splurged on his quarterback and fellow rookie, Dak Prescott, with matching diamond chains from IF & Co. in Los Angeles.
The two "214" chains, which happen to be the numbers of Elliott and Prescott and the area code of Dallas, are 14 carat white gold with "just under 10 worth of VS1 and VS2 quality diamonds," according to TMZ Sports. While the cost of the jewelry is unknown, it is believed that the materials alone are somewhere in the five-figure range.
With just two games remaining in the regular season, Elliott has plenty to be grateful for this year. If it weren't for arguably the best offensive line in the league, Zeke wouldn't be a shoo-in for Offensive Rookie of the Year. If it weren't for the emergence of Prescott following Tony Romo's injury in the preseason, opposing defenses would be selling out to stop the run all season long, possibly preventing Elliott from bursting onto the scene as quickly as he did.
Zeke needs to be careful, though, because he may have set himself up. The offensive line and Prescott are probably assuming that the gifts can only go up from here.
