The settlement called for $42M to be paid to football charities, and a licensing agency be established to control retiree rights. The NFL could still continue to use their images in NFL Films. Players have until Aug. 30 to opt out. They can also oppose the proposed settlement at a hearing on Oct. 17 in federal court. The judge, though, has indicated he will approve the settlement. Dryer could sue the league again for using his image in NFL Films, assuming the settlement is approved on Oct. 17. He said that he would keep all his options open. The name of the case is Dryer v NFL Films.
