Ezekiel Elliott

The NFL has botched a number of domestic violence investigations over the past few years unleashing a public relations nightmare for the league.

“Real-life Approach” Needed for Dealing with Domestic Violence and Sexual Assault in Sports Leagues and Beyond

domestic violence in the NFL
