Former Jets LB Erin Henderson is suing the team for wrongful termination and disability discrimination, according to ESPN's Rich Cimini and NJ Advanced Media.
The now-retired linebacker is seeking $3.3 million plus in damages.
According to Henderson, he was placed on the Jets' non-football injury list unjustly. He suffers from bipolar disorder and says that the team didn't give him the proper care.
Henderson also had alcohol problems as he was arrested for multiple DUI's, and was charged with a DWI and possession of marijuana in an incident in 2014. The LB pleaded guilty to the DWI charge and received two years of probation.
Henderson played six years with the Vikings and the final two years of his career with the Jets. He made 235 total tackles, forced eight fumbles, recorded 8.5 sacks and had just two interceptions in 85 games played.
