NFL | Players respond to Roger Goodell letter

NFL Players, including Seattle Seahawks OG Chester Pitts and Houston Texans LB Will Witherspoon, were critical of the letter sent by commissioner Roger Goodell, stressing the need to return to the bargaining table, according to The Associated Press. "I've told my guys to take the letter and set it on fire. We're not that stupid," said Pitts, whose reaction was relayed by NFLPA assistant executive director George Atallah. Witherspoon called it "very distasteful" for Goodell to send out such a letter. "If we were in court, I would compare to a lawyer trying to lead a witness," Witherspoon texted. "I duly object to the fact he has highlighted his highpoints but not given them any ground to stand on!"
