There have been 4,800 names of former NFL players that have submitted their names as plaintiffs in a concussion lawsuit against the NFL.
One more name added to the list probably trumps all the others.
The trend of former players suing the NFL for damages has been kind of disturbing to me. Not from the standpoint of guys who may be broke or downtrodden trying to get money, but from the standpoint of these guys not knowing or acting as if they don’t know what they signed up for in playing this sport.
It’s one thing if the NFL withheld information from these players in regards to how the hits they were getting week in and week out were affecting their bodies. The trend of suing this former employer for not informing players of “damages” seems to be getting old, and rather quickly.
Don’t be surprised if pretty soon, draft picks will have to sign waivers right after signing their contracts.
