NFL Players Prepare For Lock Out

FOXBORO (AP) — The NFL players’ union is advising its members to save their last three game checks to prepare for a lockout it expects to come in March.

In a letter to the players, NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith said the union had an “internal deadline” for agreeing to a new collective bargaining agreement. “That deadline has now passed,” he wrote.

The union also said it is filing a grievance over a league threat to cancel health insurance for players should a lockout occur.

The letter was dated Wednesday, and copies were strewn across a table in the New England Patriots locker room during the media availability on Saturday.

Patriots player representative Matt Light said he is doing his best to educate his teammates on how to prepare.
