Dallas - A pair of Dallas Cowboys employees have agreed to settle a lawsuit against companies run by franchise owner Jerry Jones.

The Morning News reported on Monday that Rich Behm and Joe DeCamillis will each be paid $5 million in cash and benefits for their injuries sustained in a May 2009 storm which caused the collapse of an 86-foot-tall practice tent.

Behm, who was paralyzed below the waist, and DeCamillis, who sustained a broken neck in the collapse, had already won a collective $24 million from the company that designed the structure.

The suit claimed that Jones' businesses -- Blue Star Land, LP, Blue Star Development Company and Cowboys Center, Ltd failed to have an expert review repair plans for the structure.
