Seahawks, 49ers Vote to Authorize NFLPA to Decertify

After meeting with officials from the NFL Players Association on Tuesday, players on both the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers voted unanimously to authorize the union 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.

NFLPA officials will visit with players from the Oakland Raiders today.

For the Seahawks, guard Chester Pitts was named the team's player representative, with quarterback Matt Hasselbeck and Lawyer Milloy co-alternates. (T.J. Houshmandzadeh was Seattle's player rep in 2009, with Deon Grant and Hasselbeck the co-alternates.)
