Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - A federal judge has granted preliminary approval of a revised settlement agreement between the NFL and former players who sued the league over concussions.
The new deal, struck last month, would provide unlimited funds to retired players and their families if the players suffer from neurocognitive illnesses.
U.S. District Court Judge Anita Brody wrote in her decision on Monday that her concerns over an earlier settlement were "satisfied" and that the revised deal "is a significant improvement" over the previous one.
