Sayers Withdraws Suit Against Chicago Bears

Just days after filing suit, the lawyer for former Chicago Bears great Gale Sayers says he will voluntarily withdraw that litigation against the NFL.


The suit… which was filed Friday in federal court in Chicago… claimed the league was negligent in failing to do enough to prevent head injuries during Sayers’s playing days in the 1960s and ‘70s.


The suit says as a result, Sayers suffers from chronic headaches and memory loss.


But now the lawyer says he’s been told by Sayers’s family that the 70-year-old former running back no longer wants to pursue the case.
