PRESIDENTIAL PROBLEM? The BOSTON GLOBE's Volin noted one "interesting situation to watch" is that of free agent OT Eric Winston, who was recently elected NFLPA President, succeeding Domonique Foxworth. Neither of the "last two presidents were able to find spots with teams after being elected." Perhaps Winston’s unemployment "is because of shaky play" but former NFLPA President Kevin Mawae "openly questioned if he was being blackballed, and it’s fair to wonder if the same could happen to Winston" (BOSTON GLOBE, 4/6). The NFLPA and its Exec Committee are “scheduled to spend the next two days meeting with high-ranking NFL officials to emphasize the importance of player conduct” following the Dolphins’ bullying scandal. The gathering will mark the “first formal meeting” for Winston as president (ESPN.com, 4/7).
