So, will $765 million make a dent in the NFL's coffers?

Obviously revenue isn't the same as profit, but the league isn't exactly scraping by. Here's what $180 billion looks like against $765 million, with each stack of bills representing $250 million:

Hey, $765 million is kind of a steal! It will come out to $150,000-$170,000 per plantiff, $38 million per year, and an affordable $76.5 million per every known concussion that Troy Aikman had. Chump change? Yeah, pretty much.
