New York Jets left tackle D’Brickashaw Ferguson was fined $15,000 by the National Football League for his role in a scuffle at the end of last week’s loss to the New England Patriots, ESPN New York said.
The New York Jets have freed $7.5 million in salary cap space for next season by reworking Pro Bowl offensive lineman D’Brickashaw Ferguson’s contract, the New York Daily News reported, citing an unidentified person.
The labor dispute between the National Football League and its players could deprive drafted and undrafted players of a fair chance to earn roster spots, New York Jets player representative Tony Richardson said.
The National Football League said players will have full access to team practice facilities starting tomorrow morning, when they’ll be permitted to work out, get medical treatment and meet with coaches.
Representatives of the National Football League and its players union started a 14th day of meetings with a federal mediator in Washington about how to divide almost $9 billion in revenue, the most of any sports league.
