It happens every offseason. A photo of a notable NFL player looking not completely perfect surfaces on social media. Fans then start to freak out about said photo.
It happened this weekend with Ezekiel Elliott.
A photo of the Dallas Cowboys star running back went viral on social media.
Elliott is sporting a baggy T-shirt and a beard. So, yeah, maybe he doesn’t look completely chiseled at the moment.
Questioning Elliott’s “weight” at the moment is stupid, though. This is the same guy who’s totaled 4,048 yards and 28 touchdowns over three seasons. No running back has been more reliable over that same time period.
And, of course, camera angles are at play.

The Cowboys, meanwhile, are about a month away from OTAs. Dallas’ first OTA is set for May 21-May 23, with a second session happening about a week later.
