Finally, a proposal on a new drug policy arrived from the NFL.  The NFLPA board of player representatives, however, decided not to vote on it.

“There was no vote tonight,” NFLPA spokesman George Atallah told PFT via text message.  “There are still unresolved issues.  We will continue to work toward a comprehensive agreement on the drug policies.”

The NFLPA convened a conference call of the 32 player representatives in order to vote on the league’s proposal.  The matter wasn’t put to a vote, which indicates that union leadership did not believe the proposal was strong enough to merit consideration by the full body of representatives.

Negotiations presumably will continue.  It’s unclear when or if a new agreement will be reached.
