Earlier this morning, Judge Anita Brody from US District Court in Philadelphia opened a status conference for retired players to update everyone on the next steps to apply and qualify for their potential settlements. In a first, the conference was actually held at a conference center and livestreamed with video and slides to detail the steps and timeline that retired players will need to follow in order to ensure that you’re registered for the entire process.
Each player will initially be given baseline tests to establish their current conditions and instructions will be provided once you’re registered. And keep in mind that the deadline for registration is set for August 7, 2017.
The entire 1-hour presentation has been uploaded along with slides to the NFL Concussion Settlement website and you can access it by clicking the button below. When a new tab/window opens, you’ll be required to provide your name and e-mail address for access and then the presentation will begin. Unfortunately, for some of you, this may still be difficult to access so we’re looking into other ways to make this easier to access and view. But in the meantime, here’s today’s information (first time users will be required to register to view):NOTE: IF YOU DO NOT REGISTER, YOU WILL NOT BE ELIGIBLE FOR ANY BENEFITS.
