The cap on per-player compensation in the Ed O'Bannon case will be capped at $5,000 per year for players, with a maximum reward of up to $20,000 for players. However, the exact figure for what players could earn will be determined by the number of players who make a claim as well as what sport that player played (or plays). Other considerations will be if they appeared in the game either with their likeness or in a photograph, and the number of years the players appeared in the game.
No players receiving rewards will have their eligibility affected by the payout. In total, $60 million in settlements were reached between the Ed O'Bannon legal team and EA, the NCAA, and the CLC.
