A Missed Excessive Celebration Fine Turns Into a Donation to the Salvation Army

Richard Mackson-USA TODAY Sports

Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliot continues to dominate the NFL and own the end zone. He found the end zone early on in the second quarter of yesterdays game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Elliot has a thing for hurdling over humans, objects and kettles. After putting six points on the board the rookie ran over to the Salvation Army kettle and jumped inside. 

Normally you would get a fine from the NFL for excessive celebration after jumping into that kettle. The organization has been cracking down on touchdown celebrations more than anything else. However, the NFL decided that they would not fine him earlier this morning. Like the good man that Elliot is, he decided he would donate to the Salvation Army to make up for his actions. He would match whatever he would have been fined. At least that way it ensures the money would go to the right place and not just some rich guys wallet.

This celebration came as a surprise to many fans and his teammates since he didn't talk about his plans before the game. Was it an impulse decision or had he planned for this all along?
