Miami, FL, United States (4E Sports) – A day after joining 14 other players in filing a lawsuit against the NFL for concussion, Miami Dolphins Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino plans to withdraw the case.
A source said Marino and his lawyers will be in discussions to withdraw from the lawsuit that was filed in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia.
Marino and his lawyers are attempting to discover how Marino’s name was included in the lawsuit. Marino has said in the past he had two reported concussions during his 17-year career.
“It was never Marino’s intention to initiate litigation in this case, but to ensure that in the event he had adverse health consequences down the road, he would be covered with health benefits. They are working to correct the error,” a source said.
Marino’s withdrawal from the lawsuit could come as soon as later on Tuesday, depending on how the discussions go between the two sides.
