Jerry Jones to pay National Football League $2 million for legal fees

The NFL plans to seek payment of more than $2 million from Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones for his actions previous year related to Commissioner Roger Goodell's contract extension and the suspension of running back Ezekiel Elliott, according to multiple people familiar with the league's inner workings.

The fine was meant to reimburse the league for legal fees incurred during its defense of the six-game ban for alleged domestic violence.

Last week, The New York Times reported that most owners wanted Goodell to penalize Jones for trying to derail negotiations to renew Goodell's contract, and for his legal defense of Elliott, who was suspended after the National Football League investigated domestic-assault allegations.

Ezekiel Elliott lost his appeals previous year while fighting his six-game suspension over domestic violence allegations, but the running back appreciates the way Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones supported him. The league made its decision on Jones' appeal today.

After eventually relenting, Jones said after the owners meetings in December that he got what he wanted with an agreement to consider changes to the power of the commissioner's role through the league's constitution.

Jones had threatened to sue the six other team owners on the committee if Goodell's contract was approved. The compensation committee sent Jones a strongly worded letter that said his behavior was "damaging the league" and "detrimental to the league's best interests".

Ezekiel Elliott was at peace with his entire suspension saga after the season.

The NFL released a statement Wednesday saying that the matter was resolved but did not disclose any details regarding a financial settlement.
