Coin Toss: Should richer players pass up lockout fund?

Guys like Selvish Capers, who spent last year on the Redskins’ practice squad and took home $53,000, aren’t eligible for the NFL Players Association lockout fund, which offers financially strapped players as much as $60,000.

Guys like DeMarcus Ware, who has a $79 million contract with $40 million guaranteed and paid into the fund, are. Ware said Thursday he would pass up his payment as a gesture of solidarity, according to The Early Lead.

Should wealthier players pass up their lockout payments and leave their money for players who really need it?

Let us know what you think.
