Price per head sportsbooks were surprised when they learned that the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reported that Dan Marino, Miami Dolphins legend and Hall of Fame quarterback, is planning to withdraw from a concussion-related lawsuit against the NFL.
Marino, 52-years-old, who is very famous with pay per head services for his amazing career in the league, was one of 15 players who last week filed a lawsuit in federal court in Philadelphia. Price per head sportsbooks learned that the plaintiffs joined over 4,800 others who claimed that the league misled players about the long-term dangers of concussions. Those claims were denied by the NFL.
According to the newspaper, Marino and his lawyers will hold talks to withdraw from the lawsuit.
“It was never Marino’s intention to initiate litigation in this case, but to ensure that in the event he had adverse health consequences down the road, he would be covered with health benefits. They are working to correct the error,” a source told the Sun-Sentinel.
According to the report, the former player and his lawyers are trying to find out how Marino’s name was in the lawsuit.
Pay per head services found out that the lawsuit does not specify any medical problems that were suffered by the plaintiffs, including Marino, who in 1999 retired from the sport. It seeks medical monitoring and unspecified damages.
In August 2013, the original group of players and the NFL made an agreement on a settlement of $765 million. However, price per head sportsbooks found out that in January the settlement was rejected by a federal judge.
