    Bills waive Everett, freeing him to seek NFL disability benefits

    http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/news/story?id=3393765

    Good to see this guy recovering well.

    One thing I don't understand about this article is the amount of money he is able to receive. Anybody know the specifics?

    Now that he has been officially waived, Everett may apply for a long-term disability payment of $224,000 per year over the life span of his injury, according to The Buffalo News, which first reported the roster move. An injured player is not eligible for that benefit while still on a team's active roster.



    Everett received his full pay of $435,000 last season, his third in the NFL, qualifying him for a full NFL pension. Based on his number of years in the league, he is eligible to receive monthly payments of $1,410, the newspaper reported.

    Everett may also apply for a one-time payment of $75,000 as part of the Player Health Reimbursement Plan, according to the report.

    Yes, I appreciate the news but this should probably go in general, everytime someone writes about another teams player in here its because they want us to sign him

    I think the 224k is disability while the $1,410 is his pension. I'm assuming you know the difference.

    Sorry, I guess I over reacted.. I must have had a brain fart when I read the part of the post where the OP asked a question... My bad, my excuse is a bad sunburn, flu like symptoms, and a broken heart with the Ratriot cover-up

    I am glad to see Kevin Everett recovering nicely, this is just a game and no one not even a Buggalo Bill should have their life altered as result of a game. God Speed K.E!
    Watch me jiggle all the way to the DWTS finals!
