NFL Lockout: Players Appear Unlikely To Accept Owners' Agreement

As Lee Corso says, "Not so fast, my friend!" The players do not appear close to ratifying the agreement the owners approved earlier on Thursday. According to Pro Football Talk (via Adam Schefter), player reps received an e-mail that appears to claim that the owners are attempting to coerce the players into re-forming the union hastily, which would be a violation of national labor laws.

Sports Illustrated followed with a tweet about the letter DeMaurice Smith sent the players. In it he tweeted:

5) There is no agreement between the NFL and the Players at this time. I look forward to our call tonight.

As it stands now, approval of a new collective bargaining agreement by the players appears to be on shaky ground. The 6 p.m. MT call appears though it will be to update the players a bit more on what was in the e-mail.
