Jun. 4, 2014 Miami Herald

Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Dan Marino is changing a botched play called in a huddle with his attorneys.

One day after being the biggest and most recognizable name on a new concussion lawsuit against the NFL, the former Miami Dolphins quarterback issued a statement saying he is withdrawing from the suit.

“Within the last year I authorized a claim to be filed on my behalf just in case I needed future medical coverage to protect me and my family in the event I later suffered from the effects of head trauma,” Marino’s statement reads.

“In so doing I did not realize I would be automatically listed as a plaintiff in a lawsuit against the NFL. I have made the decision it is not necessary for me to be part of any claims or this lawsuit and therefore I am withdrawing as a plaintiff effective immediately.

“I am sympathetic to other players who are seeking relief who may have suffered head injuries. I also disclaim any references in the form complaint of current head injuries.”
