Seven players file objection to concussion settlement proposal

A group of seven retired players have objected to a proposed concussion litigation settlement in federal court.

They have protested the agreement as one that "comes nowhere near being fair, adequate and reasonable" and called it a "lousy deal" that's "a great deal for the NFL and class counsel."

Here are the players who filed an objection to the settlement proposal: Alan Faneca, Ben Hamilton, Robert Royal, Sean Morey, Rock Cartwright, Jeff Rohrer and Sean Considine.

The players suffer from concussion-related symptoms, including depression and sleep disorders.

The players don't have chronic traumatic ecephalopathy, so they wouldn't get money under the proposed settlement.
