Video: Dez Bryant Says Cowboys Aren't Hazing Ezekiel Elliott, They "Need His Mind Right"

Despite 2016 being running back Ezekiel Elliott's first season in the NFL, don't expect the Cowboys rookie to be picking up any massive dinner checks this offseason. With the playoffs in mind, they want the former Ohio State star's head to be clear of distractions.

On Tuesday, TMZ Sports posted this great video to YouTube of Dallas wide receiver Dez Bryant saying that the Cowboys don't playfully haze rookies anymore and that Elliott will escape the tradition altogether because they "need his mind right."

With so many weapons on the field it's easy to see why. The addition of Elliott behind one of the best offensive lines in the country provides endless possibilities in Dallas. Bringing balance to the potent offense could really open things up for Tony Romo.
