Benson meets with labor board
Cincinnati Bengals running back Cedric Benson met Tuesday with the Cincinnati branch of the National Labor Relations Board regarding his charge of an unfair labor practice against the NFL Players Association, according to the Cincinnati Enquirer.
In August, a letter from the union gave the league the power to discipline eight players who were regarded as repeat offenders of the NFL's personal conduct policy. Benson's name was on that list, and Commissioner Roger Goodell suspended him for three games.
Benson has appealed the suspension and continues to play for the Bengals until the appeal is heard.
Additionally, Gary Muffley, the regional director for the NLRB, said the process of Benson pursuing the unfair labor practice against the NFLPA could take three to four weeks to run its course.
