Now at home in Maryland, former Jets linebacker Erin Henderson is trying to build a new life for himself outside of the NFL. But that doesn't mean he's still mad about his exit from the league.

Henderson, who was released by the Jets after last season, is suing the team for $3.3 million for wrongful termination. He was placed on the non-football injury list last year and did not suit up in a game after the move. Henderson believes the reason he no longer employed by the club is because of his bipolar disorder.

The suit alleges the Jets provided a "hostile work environment" and that the team did not give him proper medical care for his issues. Speaking to ESPN's Rich Cimini, Henderson said teams are fearful to bring him back into the league.

"I don't think I'm being blackballed; I think it's the fear of the unknown," Henderson said. "Nobody knows what happened, and I'm not going to tell everybody right now because it's not the right time and place. Everybody is like, 'I really don't know, so I don't want to go. I'm not going to touch him.'"
