CBS5.com, 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.

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.

NFL | Romanowski Speaks

Wed, 18 May 2005 05:34:13 -0700

The San Francisco Chronicle reports former NFL LB Bill Romanowski spoke Tuesday, May 17 about taking steps to play at a physical and emotional peak through 16 NFL seasons. Those steps left him conflicted at times. Romanowski said his emotions got away from him during an interview with a Denver newspaper in which he detailed for the first time how he tailored his use of performance-enhancing substances to avoid detection in league-administered drug tests. Romanowski said he would use a product and when the league banned that product he would move on to something new. He added he got carried away and said things he should not have. Despite his history of illegal hits, enormous fines and often questionable behavior on and off the field, he will go down as one of the NFL's most durable and productive linebackers.
