Cardinals kicker Jay Feely created a stir in NFL circles when he revealed that Panthers owner Jerry Richardson had been condescending toward players including Drew Brees and Peyton Manning in a negotiating session.
Today on PFT Live, Feely said he’s concerned that emotions are running high, at the expense of actually working out the issues that need to be ironed out between the owners and the players.
“To get an agreement we need to keep emotion out of the negotiation, and we need to rely on logic and reason,” Feely said. “If we allow emotions to enter into the negotiations, then that can get in the way of logic.”
In a wide-ranging discussion about the negotiating process, Feely also said that his involvement with the players’ union has strengthened his aspirations for a political career when his playing career ends.
