Cornerback blames incomplete paperwork
Former cornerback Decory Bryant finally reached a settlement of $400,000 with the University of Georgia Athletic Association. A neck injury ended Bryant’s career in 2003. The settlement was reached after an Athens-Clarke County judge dismissed the lawsuit that claimed the association failed to secure Bryant a $500,000 athlete disability insurance policy that would have paid him in the event he suffered a career-ending injury.
Ed Tolley, the association’s attorney, noted that the settlement was a sign that the athletic association was always committed to helping Bryant.
However, Bryant claimed that an official of the school failed to complete the paperwork for the $500,000 policy.
