NFL Lockout: Redskins Don't Support NFL Coaches Association's Brief

Apparently the Amicus brief submitted Wednesday by the NFL Coaches Association in favor of ending the lockout shouldn't be read as representative of all NFL coaching staffs. The Washington Redskins have released a statement claiming they never backed the brief. Skins coaches say they "stand united with ownership."

According to NFL Network's Albert Breer, the statement is signed by 17 Washington coaches and seems to imply former linebackers coach Kirk Olivadotti, who was hired in February by the Georgia Bulldogs, was the staff representative who supported the brief.

The motive behind this statement isn't immediately clear, though it could possibly have something to do with the coaches' own collective bargaining agreement. Or maybe Daniel Snyder had a problem with being publicly criticized -- a longshot, I realize. Or maybe Mike Shanahan is enjoying his time off just fine, thank you very much.
