Retired NFL Players Still Seeking Better Benefits

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The group of retired NFL players that was part of the labor talks during the lockout last year has not given up a push for better post-career care.

The dozens of players, including several members of the Pro Football Hall of Fame, filed a lawsuit against the NFL Players Association last fall. The complaint alleges the union illegally sacrificed some of the league revenue that was supposed to go toward additional retirement benefits so that current players could keep more money.

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson will hear oral arguments from both sides in court on Wednesday in Minnesota.

NFLPA spokesman Carl Francis says the union won’t comment on the lawsuit. The NFLPA has filed a motion to have the case dismissed.
