Bryant reaches insurance settlement
ATHENS, Ga. -- A former Georgia cornerback has reached a $400,000 settlement with the school's athletic association over an insurance policy dispute.
Decory Bryant's settlement comes weeks after an Athens-Clarke County judge dismissed his lawsuit that claimed the athletic association failed to secure him a $500,000 insurance policy before he suffered a career-ending injury.
Athletic association attorney Ed Tolley said Wednesday it was a sign the "athletic association had committed to helping" Bryant all along.
Bryant's football career ended in 2003 with a neck injury. He claimed that a school official failed to complete the paperwork that would have paid him if an injury ended his career.
