Here are a few other stories you might have missed from around the NFL this Friday,:
- The NFLPA has taken issue with a recent practice of teams monitoring players’ sleep habits, saying the usage of such technologies violates the Collective Bargaining Agreement, writes Tom Pelissero of USA Today.
- The “point person” for the Chargers on their stadium issue, Mark Fabiani, has stated that the organization will file for relocation to Los Angeles when the league opens the application window in January, according to Eric D. Williams of ESPN. “At this point yes, because there’s no sign that the other team or teams are not going to file,” Fabiani said. “Everyone assumes all three teams will file, and in that case we can’t afford to lose our market in Los Angeles and Orange County.”
- The city of St. Louis has committed $150MM towards the proposed $1 billion stadium to keep the Rams in west Missouri, including $6 million per year and an unknown game-day tax rebate, writes David Hunn of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. About $70MM of that will come directly from the city, while the rest will come from the public authority that owns the Edward Jones Dome.
