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.
