Longterm Injury And Disability Benefits In The NFL | DarrasLaw Podcast

“There are diehard listeners who say, “[H]ey look, it’s a violent sport… you’re making large dollars to play in the NFL you’ve got to anticipate that with that comes problems. But, I don’t think that anybody anticipated that multiple hits to the head were going to cause concussion syndrome, encephalopathy, and other problems.” – Frank N. Darras

In 1980, there were only four men playing in the National Football League (NFL) that weighed 300 pounds or more. Today, over 300 active players weigh 300+ pounds. It’s a fact that in the past 30 years, professional football players have gotten bigger, faster and stronger.
