Least Intimidating NFL Player Names

Of course football is a tough sport played by a bunch of giant guys who can take a hit as hard as they can give it. But it takes more than brute strength and athletic ability to be a star in the NFL.

Jim McMahon, 6 Other Former Players Sue NFL Over Concussions

Former quarterback Jim McMahon and six other former players say the NFL hasn’t done enough to address and ensure safety for its players. The effects of violent hits on players’ long-term health is widely known, yet, the players complain, the league hasn’t done enough to monitor players’ conditions. An NFL spokesperson responded denied that the league is acting irresponsibly.

The group hoped to recruit other retired and current players who are now dealing with a lifetime of consequences of concussions or other head-related injuries. Earlier in the summer, a group of 75 other players filed a lawsuit against the NFL, but this is the first potential class-action lawsuit of its kind.

NFL Suspends Terrelle Pryor – Before He Joins the NFL

In what many are flagging as a strange ruling, the NFL announced that former Ohio State standout Terrelle Pryor will be eligible for Monday’s NFL supplemental draft but that the controversial player must sit out the first five games after he signs a contract.

Pryor chose not to play his final season with the Buckeyes or else suffer a five-game suspension for his role in a memorabilia-for-cash scandal. Now, it seems that the NFL is enforcing the NCAA’s sentence.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said you can’t dance around the rules “and get a free pass into the NFL.”
