Then he attacked.

The executive director of the NFL Players Association quickly said ”no” Thursday when asked about the current 10-year collective bargaining agreement getting extended beyond the 2020 season.

Then Smith Jonah Williams Jersey , re-elected last year, went on the offensive about the next CBA.

”We prepare for war,” he said. ”If we are able to get a collective bargaining agreement done, great. All of these men went through a unilateral war declared on players in 2010-11.”

NFLPA President Eric Winston stressed there are many portions of the current contract they believe need changing, from health care issues to the union’s role in overall league decisions to, naturally, revenue splits.

”We want 99 percent of the revenues,” Winston joked before adding the structure of rookies’ contracts, health care and technical field issues as key elements for negotiations.

Ryan Wendell said workplace player safety would be an important topic, along with ”more unfettered union access to the players.”

Wendell also wants the players to have a ”seat at the table in how revenues are raised.”

There remain three full seasons of NFL play before any potential work stoppages, be it a lockout or strike. On many issues, the union and owners have fought bitterly through the seven years of this agreement.

It isn’t likely to change, either.

”We have been preparing with the idea this will be another arduous process,” Winston said.

One area the union is adamant about wanting to change is Commissioner Roger Goodell’s role in handing out player discipline. The players gave up any alteration in that area in 2011 in exchange for other concessions from the league.

They’ve regretted it ever since, and also take issue with the system of fines handed out by the NFL.

”The fine system and guys are labeled as repeat offenders,” annoys Thomas Davis, the 2014 Walter Payton Award winner as NFL Man of the Year.

The Carolina linebacker was suspended for one game this season for what was determined an egregious hit on Packers receiver Davante Adams late this season.

”They group and categorize everyone in the same box. It shouldn’t be that way.”

Winston insisted an 18-game schedule, which the league pushed for before the current CBA Elgton Jenkins Jersey , remains as nonsensical as it did in 2011.

Smith virtually ducked answering queries about Colin Kaepernick, the former 49ers quarterback whose kneeling during the national anthem beginning in 2016 sparked the 2017 player protests about social injustice. Kaepernick was not on any roster this season and has filed a grievance against the NFL that the union is supporting.

But Giants linebacker Mark Herzlich, who missed the season while injured, said Kaepernick had an effect on his peers.

”I don’t think that made people more fearful” of repercussions from management, Herzlich said of the demonstrations during the anthem.

”It empowered more people to join a movement they really felt was right. I think the bravery of these men to really show what they feel and say, this is about unity. We’re not going against the country or the flag, but we’re about wanting equality.”

Winston praised the players for their willingness to speak up when a teammate or opponent appeared to be hurt, particularly concussed.

”I’ve seen many guys say something to a coach or the medical staff: `Get this guy checked out,”’ Winston said. ”It’s a great thing to see.

”There a big education piece to this, but there’s always an undercurrent of, `I’ve got to stick it out for my team.’ To which I say, `You’re not that good a player when you are concussed. You could cost your team a win.”’

Eagles defensive end Chris Long was awarded the Whizzer White Community MVP by the union. The NFLPA gives the award to a player ”for his profound dedication to positively impacting his team city, and communities across the country, in the spirit of the former Supreme Court justice.”

Long donated six of his game checks this season to funding a scholarship program at St. Anne’s-Belfield School, where he attended high school in Charlottesville, Virginia.

He then donated his last 10 game checks to programs that support educational equality in the three cities where he’s played so far: Philadelphia, Boston and St. Louis. Through the ”Pledge 10 for Tomorrow” campaign, he was able to match his own charitable contribution by raising another $1.3 million in donations.



The Los Angeles Chargers aren’t ready to say farewell to Antonio Gates after all.Four months after the Chargers bade a public goodbye to the leading receiver in franchise history http://www.packerscheapshoponline.com/cheap-authentic-jace-sternberger-jersey , Gates returned to the team on Sunday, one week before the start of his 16th season. The 38-year-old franchise stalwart is getting a one-year deal and another shot at his first trip to a Super Bowl.The Chargers intended to part ways with Gates last spring after his role declined behind starting tight end Hunter Henry in 2017. Their plans changed when Henry tore a knee ligament during offseason workouts in May, likely sidelining him for the upcoming season.Although they’ve been discussing a reunion for many weeks, Gates and the Chargers waited until the day before the first week of game preparation for the regular season to formalize his return to his only NFL team. Gates’ 114 career touchdown catches are sixth in NFL history and the most among active players.“I’m grateful that he wants to come back and play with us,” Chargers general manager Tom Telesco said. “But I’m also grateful he’s coming back for all the right reasons. He’s not coming back to put up more statistics. He’s not coming back to prove anything to anybody, because he doesn’t have to do that. He’s coming back because he loves his teammates, and I think he sees something special in this football team that he wants to be a part of, and that’s exciting.”The Chargers are a popular pick to be a playoff contender after winning nine of their final 12 games last season. Gates and the Chargers have made the postseason just once since 2009.Telesco wouldn’t say whether he expects Gates to play when the Chargers open the regular season at home against the Chiefs on Sept. 9.“I guess we’ll see,” Telesco said. “I certainly wouldn’t want to tell Kansas City.”Once an undrafted free agent who played only basketball at Kent State, Gates is an eight-time Pro Bowl selection and the Chargers’ career leader in receptions (927), yards receiving (11,508) and touchdown catches. He set the NFL record for touchdown receptions by a tight end last September, surpassing Tony Gonzalez with his 112th TD catch.But Gates’ 30 receptions last season were his fewest since his rookie year in 2003, and his 316 yards receiving were a career low as Henry took the majority of the big snaps. Gates started only four games, but he stepped up capably into a larger role when Henry was out with a bruised kidney late last season.The Chargers spent the past four months with a clear need for a pass-catching tight end. Newcomer Virgil Green is a veteran blocking tight end with pass-catching ability, but the only other tight end on Los Angeles’ 53-man roster Sunday was undrafted second-year pro Sean Culkin, who has never caught a pass in an NFL game.“I guess we’re very lucky to have a player like Hunter get hurt and have a player like Antonio available and willing,” Telesco said. “He knows the offense. He knows the quarterback. He knows our head coach. He knows this organization very well Dexter Williams Jersey , and he finished the year on a strong note last year.”Gates has a profound connection with Philip Rivers, who joined the Chargers in 2004 and has been their starting quarterback in every game since 2006. Rivers has thrown 87 touchdown passes to Gates, and they trail only Indianapolis’ Peyton Manning and Marvin Harrison as the most prolific TD duo in NFL history.Rivers publicly advocated for Gates’ return in recent months, and Gates will be another solid target in the Chargers’ potent offense, which led the NFL with 276.9 yards passing per game last season. With Gates back in powder blue, Rivers’ top eight receivers from last season are still with the Bolts.The Chargers made several additional moves Sunday, a day after setting their roster and choosing Caleb Sturgis as their new kicker.Los Angeles released linebacker Hayes Pullard, who played extensively last year, and quarterback Cardale Jones. Telesco said the Bolts hope to re-sign Jones to the practice squad as their third quarterback behind Rivers and Geno Smith.Los Angeles claimed linebacker Emmanuel Ellerbee off waivers from Atlanta and nose tackle T.Y. McGill off waivers from Kansas City. Telesco believes Ellerbee can fit in well with the Chargers after learning the Falcons‘ defense of coach Dan Quinn, whose scheme is derived from the system run by Chargers defensive coordinator Gus Bradley when they both coached on Pete Carroll’s staff in Seattle.Telesco also lamented the season-ending ankle injury of receiver Artavis Scott, who spent last season as a rookie on the Chargers’ practice squad after winning a national title at Clemson alongside receiver Mike Williams, the Chargers’ first-round pick last year.“He had earned a spot on this team and had done a great job,” Telesco said. “Last year at this time, we thought he could play, but this time, we know he can play.”___
