Cornerback Domonique Foxworth, a member of the players association's executive committee, said the time between the start of training camp until Thursday was necessary."There were a number of unintended consequences, and it's something that nobody likes," he said after practice on Monday. "It's kind of a necessary evil. There had to be a lag time between the re-certifying of the union and the ratification of the CBA in order to negotiate the benefits. That lag time had to be there. We as the players association proposed a waiver that those guys could sign and still practice, but the league didn't feel like it gave them the proper legal coverage. So it was kind of them holding the line. We want to do what's best for our players and obviously, the coaches want to do what's best for the team. It affects people disproportionately, but it doesn't affect the teams disproportionately. Everyone is kind of in the same spot, which is fair to the teams. For guys like Prescott, it's not fair to them, but he's a great player, and he's going to come out and do his thing."
