Ezekiel Elliott thinks the NFL's celebration policy needs to change.

Last weekend, Ezekiel Elliott scored a touchdown, promptly found the Salvation Army Bucket, and hopped in. Donations to the Salvation Army skyrocketed, and Elliott made a donation to the charity as well.

Many thought the NFL would fine Elliott for his celebration because it included a "prop," yet the MVP frontrunner was not fined. However, Zeke still thinks the NFL needs to un-strict its policy.

This isn't a "hot take" as many NFL players and fans believe the NFL is too strict on its players. But is Elliott the top choice for campaigning for a little leeway from the NFL? The rookie running back has not been fined by the NFL for a touchdown celebration.

For the Cowboys, there has been plenty to celebrate this season. And with two games left, expect Zeke to have a few more opportunities to showcase his celebrations.

Should the NFL allow players to celebrate more? You won't hear an argument from us.
