Texans Owner Feels Roger Goodell’s Email To Players Was Productive

Perhaps it’s the next-best thing to face-to-face negotiations: Become pen pals. NFL players responded over the weekend to a letter received from NFL commissioner Roger Goodell that outlined the league’s last proposal for a new labor deal with a scathing letter of their own that accused the NFL of being untruthful and addressed point-by-point differences with the offer and the process.

Despite the reaction, at least one NFL owner won’t fault Goodell for trying to reach Players in a different manner as the lockout extends to a 10th day on Monday. “I thought it was productive,” the Houston Texans’ Robert McNair said Sunday as owners gathered for NFL meetings. “It allowed Players to see exactly what the proposal was and they can judge for themselves as to the merit of it. I think we’re all sorry that they chose not to negotiate any of the points. Hopefully, they’ll look at it and decide there’s something there worth talking about.”
