(NEWSER) – The growing ranks of NFL veterans taking the league to court over concussions included a Hall of Fame quarterback, but only briefly. Dan Marino has withdrawn his name from a new lawsuit, reports the Sun-Sentinel. In a statement, the ex-Dolphins star blames it on legal confusion. "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,” he says. "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."
