Dan Marino didn't mean to sue the NFL
June 5 , 2014
The growing number of NFL veterans are now taking the league to court and Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino almost became one of them.
The Sun Sentinel reports that he has now withdrawn his name from the lawsuit. "Within the last year, I authorized a claim to be filed on my behalf just in case I needed future medical coverage to protect me and my family," he said. "In so doing I did not realize I would be automatically listed as a plaintiff in a lawsuit against the NFL. I have made a decision it is not necessary for me to be part of any claims."
Media reports note that Marino was criticized a lot after he was listed as part of the lawsuit, which would have affected his chances of joining the Dolphins.
