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.

He says: ``There was a bridge beginning to be built and then there were some recent events that kind of broke that bridge again.''

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