Four weeks ago, Falcons running back Jason Snelling joined PFT Live and, at a time when no players were speaking out about the lack of negotiations on a new CBA, Snelling courageously called for talks to happen. The following week, the most productive phase of negotiations began.
Jason rejoined PFT Live* on Wednesday to talk about where things stand, where they are headed, and his role in making it happen.
To his credit, Jason was humble about his role in giving the NFLPA* a wake-up call. But we’ll say what he wont: The NFLPA* feared an eventual mutiny, given the comments from Snelling and Eagles kicker David Akers and agent Joe Linta.
Though the talks may have gotten serious without a push from the players, there’s also a chance that the litigation-over-negotiation strategy may have continued past the point at which the full regular-season could have been played.
Either way, he’s our second visit with Jason Snelling.This video is no longer available. Click here to watch more NBC Sports videos!
