The National Football League's tentative $765 million settlement with retired players who sued the league over concussion-related brain injuries got a cautious reception Thursday from current and former players on Twitter.

For players like Detroit Lions running back Reggie Bush and Oakland Raiders punter Chris Kluwe, the settlement is not the last word in the issue, but a first step.

However, former players' union president and retired center Kevin Mawae pointed out the settlement is dwarfed by the money the league is expected to make over the next 12 years.

Others, including Kluwe and current ESPN NFL analyst Damien Woody, wondered what the settlement might mean for the NFL and its players going forward.

Former Seahawks, Raiders and Giants linebacker Aaron Curry, who retired from the NFL on Wednesday, said the settlement money won't buy back the things that brain injuries take away.
