The NFLPA sent out an advisory to NFL player agents early Friday afternoon, warning them to steer players away from a website that purportedly was trying to reconstitute a union and was not affiliated with the NFLPA. "We have received information from players indicating that they are being referred to a website," the message to agents said. "The website is asking players to vote to reconstitute as a union and that the players can use the site to facilitate that action. Please be advised that this site is not affiliated with either the NFL or the NFLPA. You should ignore this site and advise your players to do so as well."
