Players conference call underway

The conference call between the NFLPA executive committee and its player reps has begun, according to a website owned by the trade association.

After a debate on the deal, which has been agreed to in principle, a vote is expected.

“Once we vote to approve, the discussion of collectively-bargained issues can begin,” said Saints quarterback Drew Brees, a member of the NFLPA’s Executive Committee. “The health and safety issues of both current and former players are just as important as all the other issues.”
