The NFL has struck a $765 million deal with the 18,000 ex-players suing the league over concussion-related brain injuries.
It’s “pocket change” for the league, says NFL retiree Brent Boyd, an original plaintiff in the lawsuit.
With the league bringing in around $9 billion a year, Boyd has a point.
The NFL has 20 years to pay the full amount of the settlement. So by the time the settlement money has been paid in full, the league will have generated upwards of $180 billion in revenues.
