Dan Marino plans to withdraw from a lawsuit over concussions that was filed against the NFL.
"It was never Marino’s intention to initiate litigation in this case, but to ensure that in the event he had adverse health consequences down the road, he would be covered with health benefits,” a source told Dave Hyde of the South Florida Sun Sentinel. “They are working to correct the error."
The Miami Dolphins’ Hall of Fame quarterback and his lawyers are looking into how his name was joined to the lawsuit filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia. Marino, the Los Angeles Times reported on Monday, had joined 14 other former players in the latest litigation involving the league over concussion-related issues.
Marino has said that he had two reported concussions over his 17-year career.
