Ezekiel Elliott Explains Decision To Wear No. 21 For Dallas Cowboys

Former Ohio State running back Ezekiel Elliott wore No. 15 for the Buckeyes, but in the NFL, per uniform rules, he wasn't given the opportunity to keep those digits. Instead he went with No. 21 - a number that former Dallas star Deion Sanders once wore. Friday, he revealed part of his motivation to choose the new number.

Elliott, on Twitter, noted that in the mirror, 21 looks like 15. Of course, he's right.

Truth be told - Dallas fans probably don't care what number Elliott wears. If he's a star, as predicted, they'll buy his jersey either way.
