Jared Allen's NIL misappropriated by pain clinic

What the Packers’ Financials Reveal About the NFL Concussion Settlement

Packers financials NFL Concussion Settlement

On July 12, Daniel Kaplan of the Athletic reported on a staggering drop in profits for the Green Bay Packers as revealed in their 2018 Financial Report.

This was a huge departure from the prior financials, in which the team gained $75 million in profit from operations in 2016 and $65.3 million in 2017.
