Description

Retired NFL players from the days before the million dollar salary, are being denied disability funds from the NFL. These retirees are "players who are injured and seemingly unable to work," even players who are "considered disabled by the federal government (and receiving social security disability) were (until our piece brought this to light) denied benefits by the NFL.""The main reason is that benefits paid to retired players come out of the same pot of money available for player salaries."
