Jerry Jones reimburses National Football League for legal fees in Roger Goodell feud

Following Goodell's decision to suspend Elliott for six games because of domestic violence allegations made by the running back's ex-girlfriend, the NFL Players Association bankrolled the star player's appeal against the league.

Jerry Jones had conflicts with the NFL Commissioner over Ezekiel Elliott and Roger Goodell's contract extension.

The "fine" wasn't quite a full-blown punishment.

Jerry Jones has agreed to pay the NFL more than $2 million in legal fees resulting from two disputes the Dallas Cowboys owner had with the league, a person with direct knowledge of the settlement tells The Associated Press.

Jones had been facing a multi-million-dollar fine from the NFL in the latest twist to the feud between the league and the influential billionaire owner of the Cowboys.

The league long has had a provision that any owner who takes legal action against fellow owners must pay both sides' legal expenses, and this action being taken to punish Jones was said to come at the behest of several owners.

Multiple media outlets reported the $2 million-plus price tag.
