Former NFL players agree to settle a mass lawsuit over concussions and long-term health effects.

FOX News Radio’s Jared Halpern reports:

The National Football League and thousands of former players agree to a $765 million settlement to end a lawsuit accusing the league of ignoring long-term risks of concussions.

The agreement also establishes funds for research and education. A key win for one of the plaintiffs Kevin Turner diagnosed with ALS.

(Turner) “ People are no longer ignorant to the fact that brain traumas are serious.”

The settlement does not require the NFL to acknowledge wrong-doing. But a statement from the League says Commissioner Roger Goodell told the legal team to do the right thing for the game and the men who played it.
