The fight between NFL players and the league over the structure of the offseason program is intensifying, with players from the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks saying they have agreed to not show up for any in-person workouts this offseason.
The statement from the Broncos players comes after a call on Monday evening, led by Brandon McManus, the team’s NFL Players Association representative, and Justin Simmons, a Pro Bowl safety who recently signed a new long-term contract with the Broncos. The players' statement leaves room for players who have bonuses tied to offseason workout attendance to do so. Four Denver players have bonuses, including outside linebacker Von Miller and quarterback Drew Lock.
Forty minutes after the statement from Denver's players was released, Seahawks players followed with one of their own.
