Report: Brady vs. NFL suit is over
|07.26.11 at 2:58 pm ET|
According to a tweet from NFL Network legal analyst Gabe Feldman, the Brady vs. NFL antitrust suit is over after a settlement was filed with the federal court.
U.S. District Judges Susan Richard Nelson and David Doty were notified by both parties that a settlement had been reached, thus ending the suit that was led by Patriots quarterback Tom Brady due to alphabetical order.
The other plaintiffs of the case were Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Vincent Jackson, Ben Leber, Logan Mankins, Brian Robison, Osi Umenyiora, Mike Vrabel and Von Miller. Vrabel has since retired, while Miller was the lone player plaintiff to have never played an NFL game. Miller was chosen second overall by the Broncos in April’s draft.
With the antitrust suit settled, the only thing left to be done is for the players to recertify.
