Daily Madden: The NFL Labor Dispute And The Draft
(KCBS) – “Lousy football.” That’s what John says we’ll see in the fall if the NFL labor dispute drags on and NFL rookies and other players don’t get the preparation they need in training camp. Madden says the draft would proceed as normal, but with two major issues: undrafted players couldn’t sign as free agents until the dispute is resolved, and drafted players won’t be able to train with their teams.
New Carolina coach Ron Rivera, who holds the top draft choice, will attend quarterback Cam Newton’s pro day at Auburn. Is he tipping his hand?
And John reminisces about the long seasons at Seals Stadium in San Francisco before the Giants came to town. (7:50)
