Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott met today with commissioner Roger Goodell in New York. The meeting was in regards to the latest in a series of incidents involving Elliott's behavior. In May, Elliott was handcuffed by a Las Vegas security guard after a scuffle during a musical event, but was not charged.

After his meeting today with Goodell, Elliott released the following statement on Twitter:

Earlier today, I met with the Commissioner to share with him what occurred in Las Vegas and what I have learned from the incident.

I've worked hard to make better decisions and live up to the high standards that are expected of me.

I failed to do that here and I made a poor decision.

I apologized to Kyle Johnson at the time and I meant it.

I need to work harder to ensure I do not put myself in compromised situations in the future. I am rededicating myself to use all of the resources that the league has made available. But in the end, it is up to me and I am determined not to be in this position again,
