The Wall Street Journal: Cowboys owner Jerry Jones agrees to pay NFL $2 million to resolve disputes

The NFL and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones have agreed that Jones will pay more than $2 million to cover the league’s costs from a series of disputes the two parties have been involved in during the past year.

NFL commissioner Roger Goodell assessed the penalty against Jones last week, a move to collect legal fees the league had incurred in two disputes: a lawsuit over the suspension of Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott and litigation Jones had threatened in a bid to contest a new contract for Goodell.

Jones appealed the penalty and met with Goodell and members of the league’s finance committee this week in Florida, where owners were gathered for committee meetings.
