NFL | Lawyer expects to settle player’s lawsuit

The Associated Press reports a lawyer for seven current and former NFL players said he expects to settle his suit against the NFL and the players' union for recommending unfit financial advisers who caused $20 million in losses. "I would be shocked if the NFL wants this case to play out in front of a jury," attorney Jim Evangelista said yesterday during a news conference in Atlanta. "You don't want to put guys like this in front of a jury, because they are going to cream the (league)." NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said the claims are unfounded and declined to comment further. As previously noted, the plaintiffs are former players S Steve Atwater, S Blaine Bishop, DE Marco Coleman, CB Ray Crockett, DE Clyde Simmons and LB Al Smith and current New York Giants LB Carlos Emmons.
