Hot off the Wire news, rumors and tips

Raiders | Police and Courts: B. Romanowski, citing Bay City News, reports former NFL LB Bill Romanowski was able to settle his litigation involving a practice field punch that ended a former teammate's career, according to his attorney. Jeffrey Springer, Romanowski's lawyer, said Romanowski agreed to settle for $415,000, a lawsuit filed by former Oakland Raiders TE Marcus Williams over an incident at Raiders' facilities in Alameda on Aug. 24, 2003, in which Romanowski punched Williams in the face. Williams had been awarded $340,000 from a verdict back in March, but his lawyer was not happy and he filed a motion asking for more money or a new trial. After a short closed hearing in a judge's chambers Friday, May 27, Romanowski agreed to settle all the issues in the case, including legal costs, for just an additional $75,000, Springer said.
