FILE - In this July, 1975 file photo, Atlanta Falcons safety Ray Easterling is shown. A concussion-related lawsuit bringing together scores of cases has been filed in federal court, accusing the NFL of hiding information that linked football-related head trauma to permanent brain injuries. Lawyers for former players say more than 80 pending lawsuits are consolidated in the "master complaint" filed Thursday, June 7, 2012, in Philadelphia. Mary Ann Easterling will remain a plaintiff despite the April suicide of her husband, Ray, who had been a named plaintiff in a suit filed last year. (AP Photo/File) less
