Running back Reggie Bush’s 2015 NFL season came to a close in the first game when he slipped on a patch of concrete next to the field while playing the St. Louis Rams at the Edward Jones Dome. Two years later, Reggie Bush wasn’t even playing in the NFL. After having trouble securing a free agent contract after his meniscus tear he eventually retired, and now, three years later he’s received a massive payday from a jury.
The jury in St. Louis awarded Reggie Bush $12.5 million (compensatory and punitive) against the Rams organization (now in LA). Here’s how it all played out in the courtroom:

Reggie Bush had this to say on Twitter:
For context, the highest paid player on the Rams’ current roster is Ndamukong Suh with a base salary of $14,000,000 according to Spotrac.com.
