The ongoing litigation against EA Sports over the use of player’s likenesses in their line of college football related games essentially killed the NCAA Football line of games, which ended with NCAA Football 14. Now, it looks like even current players will have a chance to receive a chunk of the proceeds based on a settlement that has been filed.
Depending on the years used in the game and other factors, players could have the chance to receive up to $951 per year they were in the game. Current players are kind of in a predicament as players are not supposed to receive money while an amateur student-athlete. However, Johnny Manziel was allowed to make money off the illegal use of his trademark “Johnny Football,” so we will have to see how the NCAA rules on this one.
