Lawyers and NFL Owners have agreed to a tentative settlement for players who have suffered concussions.
The $765 Million dollars will be used for medical exams, research and player compensation. The NFL also agreed to pay the plaintiff’s legal fees.
The money would be used for medical exams, concussion-related compensation and a program of medical research for retired players and their families. The money, which may not be distributed for many months, will be available to all retired players with neurological problems, not just the plaintiffs. The N.F.L. also agreed to pay legal fees for the plaintiffs’ lawyers, a sum that could reach tens of millions of dollars.
