Concussion Lawsuit Settled with 277 Former Packers

At last count, 277 former members of the Green Bay Packers are part of the settlement that the NFL agreed upon on Thursday with plaintiffs in concussion lawsuits.

According to a release from the NFL's communications department:

The agreement came after nearly two months of intensive negotiations under the supervision of Judge Phillips. It will be submitted for approval to United States District Judge Anita B. Brody, who is presiding over these cases in federal court in Philadelphia. Under the agreement, the NFL and NFL Properties will contribute $765 million to provide medical benefits and injury compensation for retired NFL football players, fund medical and safety research, and cover litigation expenses. Attorneys’ fees, to be approved by the district court, will be paid in addition to the settlement amount.

The complete release and more details can be found at NFLLabor.com.
