Attorney Steve Silverman stands in a hallway outside his office Tuesday, May 20, 2014, in Baltimore. A group of retired players accused the NFL in a lawsuit Tuesday of cynically supplying them with powerful painkillers and other drugs that kept them in the game but led to serious complications later in life. The lawsuit, which seeks unspecified damages on behalf of more than 500 ex-athletes, charges the NFL with putting profits ahead of players' health. Silverman is an attorney for the players.
