NFL source NFL source USA Today article The NFL has announced that it has reached a $50 million settlement with former players over the treatment of alleged victims of domestic violence.
The agreement is the largest NFL settlement ever reached, according to the Associated Press.
The deal will help more than 1,000 former players reach settlements with the league and the Department of Justice.
The players who settled are the likes of Ray Lewis, Adrian Peterson, DeMarcus Ware, Ahmad Brooks, and DeAngelo Hall.
They will be eligible to receive $3 million each, and will receive an additional $1 million in deferred compensation.
“This settlement is an important milestone in the ongoing investigation into the abuse of our players by former NFL coaches and players,” NFL spokesman Joe Lockhart said in a statement.
The NFL also announced that the league has been conducting its own investigation into allegations of misconduct in the NFL’s operations and training facilities, and that the players will be paid out of a $30 million settlement. “
In the wake of the recent allegations against our former players, the NFL has taken unprecedented action to end the systemic, decades-long abuse of players and employees.”
The NFL also announced that the league has been conducting its own investigation into allegations of misconduct in the NFL’s operations and training facilities, and that the players will be paid out of a $30 million settlement.
The settlement comes after the NFL and the DOJ jointly announced in July that they would jointly launch an investigation into potential wrongdoing by former coaches, general managers and personnel in the league’s front office.
The league announced in September that it would take a $1 billion, 10-year financial restructuring plan to help the league improve its business and operations, including hiring and training more coaches, hiring more players and increasing its investment in training camps.
The NFL is also seeking to have the league office in Los Angeles removed from the federal antitrust investigation into antitrust violations by the Federal Trade Commission.
The Los Angeles office is responsible for antitrust issues, including unfair labor practices and anti-competitive conduct.
