Sanders and his estranged wife, Pilar, agreed Tuesday to share custody of their three children for the summer.

The judge in McKinney ordered the ex-Dallas Cowboy to pay $3,500 a month for a house where his estranged wife now lives and where their children will sometimes stay. Sanders, who's an NFL Network analyst, also must pay $275,000 in his spouse's recent legal fees.

Pilar Sanders had also sought $14,000 in monthly spousal support.

The couple previously shared a mansion in Prosper, a suburb north of Dallas. An April 23 scuffle at the house -- which Sanders live-Tweeted -- led to allegations of assault by both parties.

A judge ruled neither committed domestic violence.
