Brees says NFL concussion lawsuit settlement should be larger than proposed

The proposed $765 million settlement in the NFL concussion lawsuit seemed to involve a lot of money — but it wasn’t nearly enough, Saints quarterback Drew Brees told afternoon talk-show host Katie Couric in a segment that aired Wednesday.

“There’s so many guys out there that need to qualify for disability and certainly need a lot more,” said Brees, who recently completed his 13th season in the NFL and his eighth with the Saints and is a member of the NFL Players Association’s executive board. “The amount of money that they’re talking about … sounds like a lot, but really it’s just a drop in the bucket for the amount of help that these guys need.”
