Raiders Vote to Authorize NFLPA to Decertify

Players on the Oakland Raiders voted unanimously on Thursday to authorize the NFLPA to decertify itself, if necessary, in the event of a lockout in 2011.

Decertification would allow the union to sue the National Football League under United States anti-trust laws should the owners attempt a work stoppage.

Tight end Zach Miller remains the Raiders' player representative, with linebacker Ricky Brown and quarterback Bruce Gradkoswki the co-alternates.

According to a union source, players on all 32 NFL teams have voted to authorize the union to decertify in 2011.
