Former NFL player is suing the NFL for 5 million dollars

harry hamiltonFormer NFL safety Harry Hamilton is suing the NFL for $5 million to deal with lingering effects from brain injuries suffered during his professional career.

Hamilton, 52, was an Academic All-American safety at Penn State in 1982 and 1983. He was drafted by the New York Jets in the seventh round of the 1984 NFL Draft, and spent eight seasons in the league with the Jets and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The lawsuit, which includes Hamilton’s decision to opt out of a $765 million settlement of a class action lawsuit between the NFL and thousands of former players in 2013, was transferred to the Pennsylvania Eastern District of U.S. District Court this week.
