As NFL Lockout Continues, Jason Snelling Prefers Daily Negotiations To Lawsuits

Atlanta Falcons RB Jason Snelling isn't comfortable with the court system being used to decide the outcome of the NFL lockout, saying he'd prefer daily meetings between players and the league. He told Mike Florio Thursday that he has spoken to a National Football League Players Association representative about his concerns, but that he doesn't feel assured the dispute is being handled in the best way.

Even New Orleans Saints players seemed to approve of his stance, with a handful of them tweeting Snelling's remarks.

One of the most frustrating things about observing the lockout, as soul-grinding as it is, has been the legal battle. Very few people have the frame of reference to understand everything that's going on, and it's all so boring that I can't imagine why anybody would want to do so anyway. The idea of shutting both parties in a room until the deal gets done appeals to most fans, as farfetched as it may be.
