Ezekiel Elliott can play football pretty well.
The 21-year-old running back cannot sing, though, apparently.
The Dallas Cowboys make their rookies stand up in front of the team and sing a song at training camp. If they do a good job, they don’t have to do it again. If their performance is deemed unacceptable, they have to keep singing.
Elliott keeps having to sing.
The former Ohio State star running back, taken No. 4 overall in the 2016 NFL Draft, sung the Buckeyes’ alma mater, Carmen Ohio, the first night. He sung Ain’t No Mountain High Enough last night.
Ezekiel Elliott had to sing in front of the team yesterday. He failed, so he has to sing again tonight. His song? Ohio State’s alma mater

Thankfully, Elliott’s a pretty good running back, so his lack-of-singing ability shouldn’t get him kicked off the team.
The Cowboys are currently in training camp and open their regular season on Sunday, Sept. 11 against the New York Giants. The game will kick off at 4:25 p.m. E.T. and be televised on FOX.
