Near the end of February, NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reported the league demanded Jones reimburse it for legal fees stemming from Ezekiel Elliott's suspension and Goodell's contract-extension talks. On Wednesday, Rapoport reported the two sides reached an agreement after a meeting with the Commissioner and the Finance Committee.
Per ESPN's Adam Schefter, Jones paid more than $2 million to resolve the situation.
Jones did not make life easy for Goodell and the rest of the league in 2017. The Cowboys owner took exception to Elliott's six-game suspension following a domestic violence investigation. That ban turned into a drawn-out appeals saga, with the second-year running back ultimately serving his suspension.
As a result of that situation, Jones opposed giving Goodell a new contract, according to Seth Wickersham of ESPN.com. Ultimately, Goodell came out on top. The commissioner signed an extension that could be worth $200 million over five years.
Now, the league has gotten payback—literally—on Jones for not cooperating.
