A year after the death in a contract dispute of his son, former Denver Broncos quarterback Marvin Cook is now suing the NFL for breach of contract.
In his latest lawsuit filed Monday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Cook accuses the NFL of conspiring to cover up the child’s death.
The NFL is not commenting.
Cook, a former All-Pro quarterback for the Broncos, had been hired as the Broncos’ offensive coordinator in 2009 and his first full season with the team.
He spent three seasons in Denver before moving on to the Washington Redskins.
In 2015, Cook signed a two-year, $10.5 million contract extension with the Washington Post.
Cook was fired after two seasons, but he returned to Denver as an offensive coordinator last season.
He is expected to be an assistant coach under Washington offensive coordinator Jay Gruden.
Cook’s son, Calvin Cook Jr., died in a car accident in 2016.
He was 17.
The Cooks have been in court for the past two weeks, trying to convince a judge to stop the NFL from enforcing its $2.9 million settlement with Cook and his wife, Marlene Cook, who had been named in the suit as the cause of the boy’s death, the Denver Post reported.
The case has been moved to Denver from Los Angeles.
