Jerry Jones to pay NFL more than $2M in legal fees — Ezekiel Elliott was at peace with his entire suspension saga after the season. After 20 months of investigations and legal fights and public tantrums, the NFL and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones are now, too. “The matter of the reimbursement of legal fees has been resolved to the satisfaction of all parties,” the league announced Wednesday. The league was seeking more than $2 million in legal fees stemming from the federal court case with Elliott over his six-game suspension for violating the league’s personal-conduct policy and Jones’ opposition to commissioner Roger Goodell’s contract extension. Multiple reports state Jones will fully reimburse the league the $2-plus million. Jones testified under oath in front of Goodell and the finance committee during a hearing on Monday in West Palm Beach, Florida.
