Dan Marino Withdraw, Former Dolphins quarterback Dan Marino has decided to withdraw his name from a concussion-related lawsuit that was filed last week against the NFL, according to the South Florida Sun Sentinel.
In a statement to MMQB.com, Marino explained why’s he’s pulling out. The former Dolphins quarterback also explained how he became apart of a lawsuit that he never planned to become apart of:
“Within the last year I authorized a claim to be filed on my behalf just in case I needed future medical coverage to protect me and my family in the event I later suffered from the effects of head trauma. In so doing I did not realize I would be automatically listed as a plaintiff in a lawsuit against the NFL. I have made the decision it is not necessary for me to be part of any claims or this lawsuit and therefore I am withdrawing as a plaintiff effective immediately. I am sympathetic to other players who are seeking relief who may have suffered head injuries. I also disclaim any references in the form complaint of current head injuries.”
The Hall of Famer was one of 15 players to file the suit against the NFL on May 30. Marino’s decision to withdraw comes just one day after the the Los Angeles Times made the lawsuit public.
The suit alleges that the NFL “concealed information about football-related brain injuries.” According to the lawsuit, the league has known about concussion-related injuries since the early 1970s.
Among the other 14 players who filed the suit with Marino are former Bears and Chargers quarterback Moses Moreno, along with nine-year veteran Dwight Wheeler (1978-84, 87-88).
