[UPDATE] – Dan Marino Issues Statement & Withdraws Involvement With NFL Lawsuit



After getting mixed reactions to a supposed joining of former NFL players suing the NFL for lack of effort to prevent head trauma to its players, Dan Marino has released a statement to clarify his position and to withdraw any intentions to file suit against the NFL. Marino’s involvement in the suit was probably the most high-profile and status-heavy name on the list. Now, many are suspecting that Dan is withdrawing due to a not-s0-favorable response and his possible future career moves with the Dolphins or a future NFL-assisted on-air network.

β€œWithin 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,” Marino’s statement reads.

β€œIn 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.

β€œI 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.”

Let’s see where this goes now.
