Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones is reimbursing the NFL more than $2,,000,000 in legal fees. ESPN reports Jones has paid the money following an appeal hearing with Roger Goodell Monday. The NFL released a statement yesterday saying the matter was resolved, but didn't give details on a settlement. The league sought reimbursement for legal fees stemming from Jones' legal attempt to block Goodell's contract extension as well as Ezekiel Elliott's appeal of his six-game suspension.
The NFL has had a rule in place since 1997 that allows the commissioner to seek legal fees from teams who take them to court.
