Joe Linta wants to see the NFL’s offer Dan Leberfeld
Early this week agent Joe Linta (who reps Vlad Ducasse among others) asked the NFLPA if he could see the NFL’s last offer to the players.
“I’d like to see it myself so when I talk to my 45 guys, I can show them what it is – since there is no union,” Linta told Ed Bouchett of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “I would like (Pittsburgh Steelers president) Mr. Rooney to forward the offer to me. I represent two percent of the union, I’m not insignificant. Let me ask you something, who has the players’ back more, the players union or the player’s agent? Why can’t I get copy of this and disseminate it to my players?”
Linta doesn’t seem to think the players are getting good direction from the NFLPA.
“These guys are driving these players right off a cliff right now,” Linta told Bouchette. “I told a father of one of my players who got drafted, it’s 50-50 this season is not going to happen. These coaches are starting to go looney-toon too.”
