NFL Lockout Update

New, comments


As of just over an hour ago (4:00 PM EST) players who were formerly associated with the NFLPA were told to "stay put" this weekend while their representatives looked over the NFL owners' proposal.

The reps will meet on Monday to go over what they feel their options may be. In the mean time those same reps will also be going over what ESPN's Chris Mortensen referred to (via a high-ranking NFLPA* source) as "finishing details".

You can read the letter obtained by ESPN's Adam Schefter below the fold:

"Guys, To keep you abreast of the latest developments, we are reviewing the latest proposal for a settlement. Because of the passing of Myra Kraft in Boston, the NFLPA will not be making any public statements in honor of the Kraft family. Our recommendation is for everyone to stay put and keep doing what you are doing where you are doing it. We will meet again on Monday to discuss our options and the direction we want to go. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. Thanks for your patience. Your Player Reps."

So just to sum everything up, the players could be voting as soon as Saturday or Sunday, but fans will be waiting until at least Monday to vote.

As some news outlets have pointed out, one of the hiccups in this ordeal is San Diego Chargers' wide receiver Vincent Jackson (one of the ten named plaintiffs) who is publicly denying, but privately vying for either $10-million or a no franchise tag for life agreement.
