Brees Says the NFL Offer was “All a Show”

Drew Brees says that the offer from the NFL was “all a front” and that there was no real intent to get any sort of deal done.

The outcome of the league’s first work stoppage since 1987 could be decided in court. The first hearing on the players’ request for an injunction to block the owners’ lockout was scheduled for April 6. In the meantime, there probably will be more of the same as Monday, when Kevin Mawae — president of the NFL Players Association, the now-dissolved union — accused the league of spreading “complete falsehoods and complete lies.” New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees, on the same conference call as Mawae, said the owners’ final offer Friday “was all a front.” “I think it was all a show, with no real intent to get a deal done, other than just to say they made a proposal — that was no different than anything else that they proposed over the last couple years, couple months, couple weeks,” said Brees, a named plaintiff in the Players’ antitrust lawsuit against the league.
