Some are cocky in the NFL and some are just good. Ezekiel Elliott is a little of both. According to ESPN, Ezekiel Elliott told NFL rushing record champion he was going to break Dickerson’s record.
“He told me through his agent that he was going to break my record,” Dickerson said, via ESPN.com. “I just laughed and said, ‘Good luck.’ Many have said that; all have failed.”
Dickerson put up a NFL rookie record 1,808 yards as a member of the Los Angeles Rams back in 1983. He followed that up by posting over 2,100 yards as a sophomore the following season.
Can Zeke go for 1800 plus or 2100? We shall see….
