Saints Preseason News, 8/29/13: NFL Reaches $765 Million Settlement In Concussion Lawsuit

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Looks like Goodell and the owners were finally able to shut this lawsuit down and for less than $1 billion. SARCASM - I hope their dishonest destruction of the Saints' 2012 season, all in the advertised name of player safety but clearly more to help them against this lawsuit, helped - END SARCASM. In other news, the Saints' back-up players take on the Dolphins' back-up players tonight in the final preseason game week of the season.
