All signs indicate Ezekiel Elliott will wear only full-length jerseys in the NFL, but that won't stop the Dallas Cowboys from making some money off of Elliott's popular crop-top fashion statement. Yes, the Cowboys will indeed sell Elliott-themed crop-tops in the team store, Cowboys Merchandising Limited president Bill Priakos told NBC Dallas-Fort Worth.
The Cowboys picked the 20-year-old former Ohio State running back No. 4 overall in April's NFL Draft. He signed a $24.9 million rookie deal Wednesday.
Elliott loves showing off his abs and the hashtag #LongLiveTheCropTop.
The NCAA instituted a rule around this time last year that banned "crop-top jerseys," or players tucking their jerseys under their shoulder pads to reveal their abs. The rule clearly targeted Elliott.
Because of his position, personality, and the team that drafted him, Elliott has been perhaps the most talked-about rookie in this year's class. According to the NBC Dallas-Fort Worth report, Elliott's jersey is out-selling Jared Goff (Los Angeles Rams) and Carson Wentz (Philadelphia Eagles), the No. 1 and 2 overall picks, respectively, on Fanatics.com.
