NFL Lockout: Jeremy Jarmon Tells Players To Chill Out

The news that the players decided not to vote on the owners' proposal for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement to end the NFL lockout spurred a lot of angry tweets from players on Thursday night. Most of those tweets suggested the players were fooled, because the owners put certain things in the new agreement that the players didn't agree to having in there.

A couple members of the Redskins, though, didn't join in the players' lament. Leonard Hankerson was one who was just ready to play football. Later, Jeremy Jarmon essentially told everyone to stop flipping out.

Kinda coming off a little too defensive right now. League owners did the right thing by putting out a proposal. Let's just go from there.less than a minute ago via TwitBird Favorite Retweet Reply

It's called negotiating. It's a process. Can't be offended during the process. It's strictly business.less than a minute ago via TwitBird Favorite Retweet Reply

 

In theory, this makes perfect sense. In practice, it might have been better for DeMaurice Smith had all his players stayed unified. But maybe I'm wrong.
