The NFLPA president adds he wouldn't be able to persuade players to have faith in the league even if he wanted to.

Speaking on a conference call Tuesday, days before union representatives meet with NFL officials at the scouting combine in Indianapolis, Foxworth returned to a theme he stressed at the NFLPA's pre-Super Bowl news conference.

Foxworth adds that the players are seeking checks and balances such as a neutral arbitrator to improve relations between the union and league.
