AP source: NFL players re-certify union; talks on
Question of the Day
Aside from the Bills, players from the Patriots, Chiefs, Broncos, Bengals, Cowboys, Jaguars, Browns, Saints and Steelers have all voted in favor of recertification. Titans, Redskins and Dolphins players were set to vote later Saturday.
The Vikings aren’t scheduled to report to camp until Sunday, and it’s unclear when or if they have already voted.
Union officials did not immediately return messages left with them seeking clarification as to how many teams have voted to recertify, and when the union could potentially recertify.
“It was an easy sell,” Denver safety and player representative Brian Dawkins told the AP regarding the Broncos’ vote.
Dawkins explained that the union sends advocates to each team to explain recertification. An advocate was not required to meet with the Broncos because Dawkins is a member of the union’s executive committee.
Cautioning that the deal is not yet done, Dawkins is confident the final issues will be settled.
“De and those guys will continue to hash those things out,” he said, referring to NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith. “We have nothing but 100 percent trust in De. He knows what we want. He knows what obviously we need.”
