NFLPA Happy About Burress Decision

NFLPA Director DeMaurice Smith issued a statement about the Burress grievance ruling:

“This decision is a real win for the players,” Smith said in a statement published on the NFLPA’s website. “It means that clubs can’t impose additional discipline by claiming back signing or roster bonus monies after a suspension, either by a club or the league. The CBA clause they argued from in this case was not intended to apply to suspensions, but instead to cases where a player is holding out from training camp or otherwise refusing to perform. We are very pleased that Mr. Burbank agreed with our position.”
