    don't believe many of the NFL players know what a stand-up guy Eric Reid is

    he knelt with kaepernick and has been his advocate since

    had his lawyers review the proposed CBA to explain its implications to the members of the union

    just filed suit to overturn the CBA vote because the agreement ended up being different than the proposal the NFL sent to the players to vote on:

    Free-agent safety Eric Reid wants the NFL's new collective bargaining agreement invalidated over language added after ratification of the pact earlier this month.

    He is calling for an investigation and a revote.

    ... In a letter to the NFLPA on Monday, Reid's lawyers said language posted on the players' association's website after passage of the agreement by a 1,019-959 vote on March 15 contains language different from the one that the players signed off on.

    ... In a series of tweets Monday, Reid, a vocal opponent of the agreement, provided screenshots of the CBA agreement that showed the language added after players approved the deal.

    ... [attorney] Meiselas questioned why the language was added and why the NFL and players' union weren't transparent about the change.

    "And so Eric's letter demands the invalidation and an investigation and a revote because how do you stick in language that players didn't know they were voting for?" Meiselas said. "It's perplexing and concerning even if the changes were minor that there was no transparency and no explanation. But here, the changes are major and drastically and dramatically impact disability benefits to players."

    He said a revote seems like "the only logical answer."

    "When there's a potential manipulation of the language to an agreement, what's the alternative?" Meiselas said, adding, "We're waiting on an explanation at this point."

    Eric Reid calls for probe, revote over post-ballot changes to CBA

    The four-page letter dated March 30, 2020 and signed by Ben Meiselas and Ray Genco of Geragos & Geragos points to inconsistencies in Article 60, Section 4 from the March 5 version of the CBA and the March 15 version of the CBA. Article 60 contains rules regarding the NFL Player Disability & Neurocognitive Benefit Plan. The revisions from March 5 to March 15, when applied to the relevant language of the disability plan, allegedly modify offset rules claims from made on or after January 1, 2015 to claims made prior to January 1, 2015.

    Funny how we sometimes tie 2 different events together..

    As soon as I read this it reminded me of what some banks and mortgage companies, like Countrywide, were doing before the crash in 2008.. They would get people to sign a mortgage agreement, then later on change the language of the agreement to benefit Countrywide and screw the borrower. It was criminal..

    And if the players union allowed these changes but said nothing their leadership needs to be held accountable too..

    If this is true it's worse than any cheating scandal.
