DALLAS – Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has reportedly settled a reimbursement fight with the NFL, at a cost of over $2 million.
After a Florida hearing with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the league’s finance committee, Jones resolved the dispute “to the satisfaction of all parties,” according to NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.
Multiple media outlets reported the $2 million-plus price tag.
Late last month, it was revealed that Goodell planned levy a multi-million-dollar fine against Jones for “sabotage” and attempts to influence league officials in the fight against running back Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension. The fine was meant to reimburse the league for legal fees incurred during its defense of the six-game ban for alleged domestic violence.
Jones publicly fought to block the commissioner’s contract before Goodell ultimately signed a lucrative extension in December.
An agreement was apparently made when Jones met with Goodell and the NFL finance committee Monday in Palm Beach, Fla., where committee meetings were taking place.
