NFLPA Exec Committee Updating Players During Meeting In Florida
The NFLPA is set to hold its second full day of meetings today in Marco Island, Fla., where player reps and other players are expected to be updated by the organization's Exec Committee on, among other things, what happened in the federally mediated CBA talks that resulted in the NFLPA decertifying as a union and the NFL locking players out. About 100 players are expected to attend the meetings, which began yesterday and will continue through the weekend. Players also are expected to focus on health and safety issues. Players throughout the league yesterday received a letter from NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, and that may be another topic of discussion. The NFLPA, when it operated as a union, customarily held its annual meeting around this time in March.
