Another 31 men will be diagnosed with Lou Gehrig’s disease and 24 with Parkinson’s disease during their lives.
NFL (Lawyers) predicted that 28 percent of all retired players will qualify for an award, while estimating rates for some illnesses will be at a far greater rate than the general population and strike much earlier in life. The proposed settlement includes $675 million for player awards, $75 million for baseline assessments, $10 million for research and $5 million for public notice. It wouldn’t cover current players.
