 WASHINGTON (AP) -A Congressional committee will hold a hearing Sept. 18 about compensation for retired NFL players.
The Senate Committee on Commerce, Science and Transportation called for the hearing Friday, several months after a House subcommittee heard testimony from retired players, union and NFL officials.
The retired players claim the league and the NFL Players Association have been neglectful in dealing with those players' health problems. Many retired players have appealed directly to commissioner Roger Goodell, who in July launched a program that includes a $7 million medical fund. The union also is taking part in that program.
``I'm very sensitive to retired players that are facing medical issues,'' Goodell said. ``They helped us build this game. They're important and we are working on a number of programs to be responsive to that. ... I've met with a number of former players and will be meeting again with a number of former players to try and understand the issues better and try to create some solutions.''
