So, how much does it cost to pay off an unfulfilled NFL career? Evidently $415,000.
In 2003 Bill Romanowski crushed Marcus Williams’ eye socket during a practice drill. He did this by hitting him in the face.
Marcus Williams’ NFL career died that day as well as any respect anyone had left for Bill Romanowski.
A jury in March ordered Romanowski to pay $340,000 to Marcus Williams, but Williams wanted more money.
The Oakland Raiders didn’t have to pay anything and Bill Romanowski was never charged with a crime.
