Though the NFL has yet to announce whether the doors will be opened or closed while the 8th Circuit considers the league’s motion to stay the order lifting the lockout pending appeal, at least three teams have turned players away.
MDS pointed out that the Redskins would not allow Lorenzo Alexander and Casey Rabach into the building. A source with knowledge of the situation tells us that the Cardinals and the Dolphins have done the same.
Per the source, tackle Levi Brown was advised in Arizona the the league is waiting for the 8th Circuit’s decision. In Miami, Dolphins linebacker Channing Crowder was met with a letter posted on the door explaining the league’s decision to wait it out.
We continue to believe that the league is taking a huge risk. Judge Nelson has spoken, and the league continues to ignore her words.
