Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant settled a civil lawsuit that alleged he owed a North Texas jeweler and ticket broker more than $600,000 for jewelry, personal loans and tickets to sporting events, ESPN reported Wednesday, citing his lawyer.
Bryant paid Eleow Hunt of Colleyville, Texas, between $400,000 and $500,000, and the case was dismissed. Bryant wasn't available for comment, and his lawyer, Royce West, wouldn't disclose further details of the settlement.
The lawsuit alleged that Bryant purchased the jewelry and other items as a sophomore at Oklahoma State University, ESPN reported, and agreed to pay his debts upon signing a professional contract or promotional deal.
Bryant, the Cowboys' first-round draft pick in 2010, has caught 38 passes for 620 yards and six touchdowns in his second NFL season.
