NEW YORK (AP) - The NFL is making two additions to its legal team _ David Boies, who represented Al Gore during the recount fight in the disputed 2000 presidential election, and former U.S. Solicitor General Paul Clement.

The league said Saturday that Boies and Clement are joining Gregg Levy in representing the NFL against an antitrust lawsuit filed by 10 players, including star quarterbacks Tom Brady, Peyton Manning and Drew Brees.

The suit _ Brady et al vs. National Football League et al _ was filed Friday in federal court in Minnesota, where a judge has held jurisdiction over NFL labor matters since the early 1990s.

The NFL locked out its players, creating the sport's first work stoppage since 1987 and jeopardizing the 2011 season.
