Former Pro Bowl defender Marcellus Wiley is among a second wave of players joining a lawsuit accusing NFL teams of illegally dispensing painkillers and other drugs to keep players on the field without regard for their long-term health.

The lawsuit was filed May 20 and amended Wednesday to add 250 more former players, bringing the total number of plaintiffs to 750. Wiley, who played for four teams between 1997 and 2006 and currently works as an ESPN analyst, was the only player named in the new group. He becomes the ninth former player in the lawsuit identified by name, joining Chicago Bears stars Jim McMahon and Richard Dent.

“The first thing people ask is, knowing what happened, would you do it again?” Wiley said. “No. No I wouldn’t.”
