When NFL players sued the league in the early 1990s, leading to the free agency they have today, they chose one of the best and most respected players in football to lead the charge: Reggie White.

Nearly two decades later, the players have decided that if they decertify as a union and take the owners to court again, they’ll choose three of their best and most respected players to lead the charge: Peyton Manning, Tom Brady and Drew Brees.

According to multiple reports, the players’ side has decided that the three star quarterbacks with five Super Bowl rings among them should be the names attached to their lawsuit, if they decertify and go to court.

I assume Manning, Brady and Brees were asked to be plaintiffs only after Vick and Roethlisberger turned the NFLPA down :noidea:
