DEVELOPING: NFL and Players Settle On Concussions

There is a proposed settlement in the concussions lawsuit...

More when we know more...

But if you divide $765-million into 4,500 it averages $170,000 per player- which, the HQ thinks, is a mere drop in the bucket when it comes to treatment (past, present, and future) of all the player's issues that have built up over time.

The 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 Tony Dorsett, Jim McMahon and Junior Seau.

Senior U.S. District Judge Anita Brody announced the proposed settlement, but she still needs to approve the deal...

UPDATE: $765 less 30% atty fees is $535.5 m / 4500 players= $119k if fees come off the top
