The latest chapter in the Jerry Jones vs. the NFL saga was written on Monday. Jones’ appealed the league’s decision to force him to repay over $2 million in expenses from his feud with Roger Goodell and the compensation committee. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Jones eventually agreed to pay the fees.
The NFL and Jerry Jones reportedly resolved their dispute to the satisfaction of all parties, but it certainly seems like a loss for Jones. But the action against Jones wasn’t via Goodell, but was actually initiated by other NFL owners and approved by the league’s finance committee, per ESPN’s Dan Graziano.
Jones didn’t end up filing any lawsuit, but members of the committee had to seek legal advice. The league also racked up expenses related to Ezekiel Elliott’s appeal of his suspension, which the Cowboys actively supported. Elliott’s attorneys were expected to provide an affidavit and financial records illustrating that Jones was not financially involved in Elliott’s appeal, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Goodell has the authority to make Jones pay back these funds. He’s also come out on top on both of his previous battles with Jones: the Elliott suspension and his own contract extension. Since Goodell was also the one overseeing the appeal, it was hard to imagine this going Jones’ way. It didn’t, and Jones will be forced to make these reimbursements.

In honor of his retirement, let’s look back on some of the finest photos from Hochuli’s career and all of the reasons we’ll miss him.
Griffin is at the top of the list. Griffin, who had a hand amputated as a young child, won everyone over when he put up 20 bench press reps on Saturday with a prosthetic hand. Then he ran the fastest 40-yard dash we’ve seen from a linebacker since 2003. Griffin’s second attempt was much slower at 4.58, but he was experiencing some cramping. He still went ahead and finished all of the linebacker drills for the day.
