Amid a season-long flurry of fines and public complaints from running back Jamal Lewis regarding the extent to which coach Eric Mangini allegedly is overworking the team, the NFL Players Association has decided to find out precisely what is happening in Cleveland.
Jay Glazer of FOX reports that the NFLPA will be heading to town this week to meet with players away from the team facility.
As to Mangini’s recent contention that practices last only two hours, Glazer says that players reacted by asking, “What practices is he talking about?” (He’s talkin’ about practice.)
Glazer also reports that the torn patellar tendon recently suffered by defensive end Keith Grennan during a post-practice “opportunity drill” could be career ending.
So stay tuned. The union is definitely talking a close look at the situation in Cleveland, and it could end up causing even more problems for a franchise under siege.
