Another day, another concussion lawsuit.
The latest complaint, filed by four former players in Atlanta state court, is the first to mention the Saints’ bounty program, according to the Associated Press.
The plaintiffs are Myron Guyton, Lomas Brown, Jessie Small and Willie Whitehead. Brown (pictured) played 18 years in the NFL, appearing in 263 regular-season games.
None of the players were targeted by the Saints’ bounty system. Per the AP, the bounties are mentioned as evidence that the NFL “has long glorified violent hits.”
To that we say, “Duh.”
When Brett Favre or Kurt Warner or Aaron Rodgers or Cam Newton file suit and their complaints mention the bounty system, then it will be significant.
