Steinberg: The Real Jerry Macguire

Legendary sports agent Leigh Steinberg
joined host John Canzano Wednesday afternoon on The Bald Faced Truth to talk about his career and player safety.
Steinberg believes the NFL settlement was long overdue. "The spector of liability was looming so large that I almost think that having a settlement has a liberating effect in the ability of the league to be more aggressive."
"You have bigger, stronger, faster athletes so the impact of the hit is much more dramatic. I'm just worried we are going to see in five to ten years hundreds of thousands of people with these symptoms and people are going to be asking 'Where did all this come from?'"
Steinberg believes this is only the beginning of NFL lawsuits. "That's not the end of lawsuits. Players have opted out and will sue individually in the NFL, this is just the start."
