SHARPE WITHDRAWS LAWSUIT AGAINST NFL/NFLPA
Published July 5, 1995
Sterling Sharpe has withdrawn his $9.6M lawsuit against the NFL and NFLPA. However, Sharpe's lawyer, Grady Irvin, claims that "the Packers haven't heard the last word from his client." The next step for Sharpe is a July 11 hearing before federal Judge David Doty in Minneapolis on whether half the $3.2M salary Sharpe seeks in an injury grievance claim applies to the team's cap. NFL attorney Jim Conway called both Sharpe's and Richard Dent's suits "frivolous" (MILWAUKEE JOURNAL SENTINEL, 6/30).
