A federal judge denied preliminary approval of the $765 million settlement between the NFL and retired players. U.S. District Judge Anita B. Brody denied approval based on reservations that the $765 million would not be enough to cover the 20,000 retired players.
More information financial information needs to be provided from both sides to show and prove that all players and families will be paid. The payments are structured to span 65 years with players age and diagnosis to determine the amount paid to player.
Critics of the deal have said the NFL, which is a $9 billion dollar industry, is getting off too lightly with the $765 million dollar settlement. Lawyers who represented the players believe the settlement is fair, based on the challenges that they would have faced trying to get this case to trial. The NFL would have had to been proven guilty of withholding information about concussions and the players illnesses would have had to been directly linked to NFL service.
In total the NFL would have paid roughly $900 million dollars to players. This amount includes the $765 million settlement, lawyer fees and expenses.
Espn first reported, and confirmed by Lions senior writer Tim Twentyman, the news that the Lions will hire Baltimore Ravens Offensive Coordinator Jim Caldwell as their next coach.

Jim Caldwell has a history of working with and helping to develop nfl quarterbacks. Starting with the Indianapolis Colts where he worked with Peyton Manning for 6 years. Manning is on record saying Caldwell helped him become a better signal caller. After being fired from the head coaching position of Colts, after a 2–14 season without Manning. Caldwell became the OC for Baltimore Ravens and helped get Joe Flacco back on track in their run to winning the Super Bowl last year.
