The NFL plans to contest the lawsuit filed against the league on behalf of Aaron Hernandez’s daughter and stressed Friday that any attempt to cast Hernandez as a victim is misguided. On Thursday, Boston University released the results of its postmortem examination of his donated brain that found Hernandez had a severe case of CTE, the brain disease linked to concussions that can lead to violent behavior and suicide. Hernandez, of course, committed suicide in April while serving a life sentence for murder. The lawsuit, filed by lawyer Jose Baez in U.S. District Court, claims the NFL and the Patriots failed to protect players’ safety. The league, though, says the lawsuit is flawed.
