PHILADELPHIA (CBS Philly) — One former Philadelphia Eagle who was part of the lawsuit indicates he is delighted that the National Football League has decided to settle a players' lawsuit over medical problems they say are related to on-field concussions.

Bill Bergey, who took his share of hits during a sterling 12-year NFL career, says that age 68 he has felt no lingering effects.
