Former Saints and Patriots cornerback Randall Gay is among the plaintiffs in a newly filed concussion lawsuit, according to the Associated Press.

To date, more than 2,600 players have filed suit against the NFL, accusing the league of failing to protect players. The league has steadily denied those claims, and promised to defend itself in court.

Gay was one of 18 names on the most recent suit. He played at LSU before going to New England as an undrafted rookie. The Saints signed him as a free agent in 2008, but cut him in 2011, after he missed 12 games during the 2010 season because of a concussion.
