NFL says ‘we need a few days to sort this out’

The NFL is waiting to find out what happens next in the Super Bowl of Labor Law and, as it does so, it will conduct business as usual.

“We are going to proceed in an orderly way that is fair to the teams and players and complies with court orders,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network (via Twitter). “Players are being treated with courtesy and respect at club facilities. We do not believe it is appropriate for football activities to take place until there are further rulings from the court. Under last set of proposals made to [the] NFLPA, teams wouldn’t even be into offseason programs yet. We need a few days to sort this out, as NFLPA attorney Jim Quinn indicated.”

Aiello was referring to this comment from Quinn, class counsel for the players' antitrust suit against the NFL: “By law, we have to give it a day or so to let the dust settle and see if a stay gets in place and then we'll decide what happens next,'”Quinn said.
