A judge rejected the NFL's $765 concussion lawsuit settlement Tuesday, citing a concern that the money may run out at some point down the road.

The money is supposed to cover any retired player dealing with concussion symptoms, and the judge is worried 30 or 40 years from now, the well may be dried up.

ProFootballTalk's Mike Florio joined CSN Tuesday to discuss the settlement debate.

"The challenge is making sure enough money will be there," Florio said. "For now, she's not convinced there will be money for future players.

"The easiest way to fix that is for the NFL to guarantee if the money runs out, there will be money available via the NFL. If the NFL believes the settlement is enough to cover everyone, it should be a no brainer to guarantee they will cover someone."
