Re: NFL Reaches Settlement in Concussion Suit

Judge still needs to OK $765M deal

PHILADELPHIA -- A federal judge says the NFL and more than 4,500 former players want to settle concussion-related lawsuits for $765 million.

The global settlement would fund medical exams, concussion-related compensation and medical research.

The plaintiffs include at least 10 members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, including former Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Dorsett. They also include Super Bowl-winning quarterback Jim McMahon and the family of Pro Bowl linebacker Junior Seau, who committed suicide last year.

The lawsuits accuse the league of hiding known risks of concussions for decades to return players to games and protect its image. The NFL has denied any wrongdoing.

Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody in Philadelphia announced the proposed settlement Thursday. She still needs to approve the deal, which comes after months of court-ordered mediation.

Wish this would have happened before the "bounty" scandal. We might have got a slap on the wrist like other clubs which ACTUALLY cheated.

Doubt that; remember Roger was furious he felt he was lied to... Regardless what evidence was found, Roger has too big of an ego to allow a slap on the wrist.

Seems Payton has always been a thorn in his side and he finally made an offseason scandal stick...

Roger was going to GET Sean, come hell or high water. Nothing else mattered. Not even this.
