NEW YORK (AP) – The 32 player representatives to the union have delayed a vote on the NFL’s proposal for changes to the drug policy that potentially could implement HGH testing.
After a conference call of about one hour on Tuesday night in which the proposal was discussed, the player reps opted to take no action.
Union spokesman George Atallah says “There was no vote tonight by NFLPA player representatives. We will continue to work towards a comprehensive agreement.”
The union has insisted that a proposal fully satisfactory to them is the only one that will be voted on. Atallah said last week that a “piecemeal” agreement did not interest the players.
