ESPN Analyst Marcellus Wiley Adds Name To NFL Painkiller Lawsuit, Which Has 750 Plaintiffs

UNLUCKY NO. 13: Pro Football HOFer Dan Marino earlier this week withdrew a lawsuit against the NFL less than 24 hours after it was widely reported he had filed it. CBS Sports Network’s Jim Rome said, “So you want us to believe you accidentally filed a lawsuit? Spilling a glass of milk is an accident. Filing a lawsuit isn’t. I’m guessing this has more to do with Marino realizing that suing the NFL would hurt him in an attempt to get a job working for the Dolphins or another broadcasting gig, than it does somebody slamming him into a lawsuit without his permission. Either way, it is a very bad look” (“Rome,” CBSSN, 6/4).
