National Football League vows to fight Hernandez lawsuit 'vigorously'

Nothing was less suspenseful than Boston University and Dr. Ann McKee finding postmortem signs of CTE in yet another football player.

Those decisions sound like your classic deviant. In 2011, his second season, Hernandez caught 79 passes for 910 yards and seven touchdowns to help the team reach the Super Bowl, and he was rewarded with a $40 million contract. About a year after signing it, he was implicated in the murder of Lloyd. It was five days after he beat a double-murder charge.

Jose Baez, a lawyer who represented Hernandez, said researchers described Hernandez as having "the most severe case they had ever seen in someone of Aaron's age", per the New York Times' Ken Belson.

But Hernandez did not have a public history of diagnosed concussions as an National Football League player.

This case can go one of two ways.

Lockhart did not have a definitive answer when asked if Hernandez was part of the existing $1 billion CTE settlement. "But I sit here conflicted because with all of the information I have, I wouldn't change a thing".

While I'm certain no one wins in a nuclear war, I might put my money on Kim Jong Un in a game of Scrabble vs Donald Trump . It's not the first time North Korea has resorted to insults when delivering statements about its enemies.

Indeed, in a conference call with reporters on Friday, Joe Lockhart, a spokesman for the league, said that the N.F.L. would "vigorously" fight the suit and that the Hernandez family would "face significant legal issues". The NFL, and perhaps the University of Florida down the line, ends up as the targets. As David Whitley of the Orlando Sentinel pointed out, "There is no money to be made in suing (Bristol Central High)", Hernandez's former high school in Bristol, Conn. "I am yet to examine the brain of a professional football player who does not have CTE or other forms of brain damage".

In what is a one-sided document - as all lawsuits are - Baez revealed that McKee put Hernandez at Stage 3 (out of 4) of the disease, which can cause violent mood swings, depression, and other cognitive problems. Stage 4 presents itself as dementia and the inability to find words.

But the Patriots released him in 2013, shortly after he was arrested in the killing of semi-pro football player Odin Lloyd, who was dating the sister of Hernandez's fiancée.

Jenkins-Hernandez and her daughter are seeking "redress for the loss of parental consortium she has experienced based on the negligent conduct of Defendants that deprived her of the companionship and society of her father, Aaron Hernandez".

Aaron Hernandez just became the most unsafe man in football.

The CTE Center statement added that he had "severe deposition of tau protein in the frontal lobes of the brain" as well as a "deposition of tau protein in nerve cells around small blood vessels, a unique feature of CTE".
