DALLAS (AP) - The attorney for two Dallas Cowboys employees
seriously injured in the 2009 collapse of the team's practice
facility says each has received about $5 million from companies
controlled by team owner Jerry Jones as legal settlements.

Attorney Frank Branson told The Associated Press on Monday that
lawsuits filed by scout Rich Behm and special teams coach
Joe DeCamillas were settled Friday.

Behm was paralyzed from the waist down and DeCamillas suffered a
broken vertebrae when the steel and fabric building collapsed in a
wind storm on May 2, 2009.

The two previously settled with the builder, Summit Structures
of Allentown, Pa. Branson says Behm received $19.5 million and
DeCamillas was paid $4.5 million.

Cowboys spokesman Rich Dalrymple says the team had no comment
Monday.
