When Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott was named as 2016 Rookie of the Year, he brought his rookie running back up on stage with him, asking the audience if anybody had a knife so we can cut this in half. This noble gesture was as justified as it was classy, and many today still believe that Elliott deserved the nod. In the full history of the NFL, there may have never been any other equivalent pairing of first-year superstars.
The offered white mesh was worn in the December 11, 2016 loss to the New York Giants at the Meadowlands, ending an unbroken eleven-game chain of Cowboys victories that began in Week Two after dropping the season opener to Big Blue. Elliott would carry twenty-four times for 107 yards in the low-scoring rematch, ending the season a few weeks later with the NFL rushing record of 1,631 yards. The white mesh gamer features a number "21" boldly applied in blue tackle twill to chest, shoulders and verso, and "Elliott" applied to rear nameplate. Interior collar holds "Nike/NFL [size] 40" labeling with "2016" year identifier.
A "Prova" authentication label appears to the right. A Cowboys team letter documents the jersey's vintage, which is further confirmed by a match to Getty Images #630557420 and #630146168 through its marvelous, unwashed game wear.The item "2016 DALLAS COWBOYS EZEKIEL ELLIOTT GAME WORN-GAME USED ROOKIE JERSEY" is in sale since Sunday, December 13, 2020.
