Former Special Teams ace Chris Maragos last played in the NFL in Week 6 of 2017, but he was back in the news recently because his lawsuit against the Rothman Orthopaedics and former Eagles doctor Jame Bradley finally went to trial.
Maragos was suing them for improperly diagnosing the knee injury which had forced him to miss the rest of the 2017 season and Super Bowl LII. Initially diagnosed with a torn PCL, doctors repaired that injury, but allegedly missed fixing other damage in the knee (including a torn meniscus).
To help with his case, Maragos brought in former Eagles teammates Nick Foles, Jordan Hicks, and Trey Burton as witnesses.
Today it was reported that Maragos won his case and was awarded a whopping $43.5 Million.
Maragos had earned a little over $10 Million in his playing career, but this large sum of money will likely be for the missed time in the NFL along with the long-term pain he has suffered and will continue to suffer in the years to come.
