Jacobs, 35, who got probation after cooperating with investigators, recently met with NFL officials to discuss his client list. The couple had a volatile relationship, but police would not say whether the case was a murder-suicide, the Dallas Morning News reports.

Family members described Jacobs as in good spirits lately. He had implicated former Cowboys lineman Matt Lehr in his talks with the NFL, and he offered text messages and other evidence for his contacts with various players.
