The NFL had been investigating Elliott after his ex, Tiffany Thompson, accused him of domestic violence in 2016. Thompson alleged that Elliott assaulted her in a car. The running back has preached his innocence the entire time and authorities in Columbus, Ohio, where the incident supposedly took place, declined to press charges.

“I have reviewed everything, and there is absolutely nothing — not one thing — that had anything to do with domestic violence,” Jones said, as the Cowboys reported for training camp.
“My opinion is there’s not even an issue over he-said, she-said,” Jones added. “There’s not even an issue there.”
