TE Everett Released in a Move to Be Able to Collect Disability


The Bills today officially released injured TE Kevin Everett in a move that will clear the way for him to receive disability benefits after suffering a spinal cord injury that ended his career last September.  Everett will receive about $255,000 a year while he is injured.  He is a story of courage after at first appearing to be paralyzed from the neck down after a collision on a kickoff return in the season opener vs Denver.

Since then, he has come back to regain most of his motor skills, including the ability to walk without assistance.  “The Buffalo Bills continue to be moved by Kevin Everett’s heartwarming story of his recovery,” the team said in a statement released Tuesday. “His progress from September 9 of last year through today is nothing short of a miracle, and is a tremendous example of faith, family and hard work.”
