DeMaurice Smith Says He Has A Contract

One of the more embarrassing episodes in the history of the NFL Players Association has been resolved.
Executive Director DeMaurice Smith, elected without contractual terms in place, finally has a deal, according to the Associated Press.
Smith said Tuesday that a contract has been reached during a discussion with Minneapolis-area reporters.
What isn’t known (and won’t be until the relevant federal forms are filed) is the compensation Smith will receive.  He and the union reportedly were up to $5.6 million apart less than a month ago.
