In my opinion, this is bigger than the Jon Gruden emails. Gruden is just one man, and those emails didn’t cost anyone their jobs or livelihood.

The NFL and lawyers for thousands of retired NFL players have reached an agreement to end race-based adjustments in dementia testing in the $1 billion settlement of concussion claims, according to a proposed deal filed Wednesday in federal court.
