Attention sports fans

Via Claims Journal:

Former Chicago Bears tight end Gabe Reid never caught a touchdown pass during his three-year National Football League career, but he has caught hundreds of thousands of dollars from the Illinois Workers Compensation Commission.

Reid was awarded $325,000 after suffering a right knee injury while playing for the Bears from 2003-2006, according to a Chicago Tribune report.

It is the largest workers’ comp settlement for a pro athlete in the state of Illinois, an attorney told the newspaper.
