 DENVER (AP) -The NFL said Wednesday that a judge should dismiss a lawsuit filed by former 49ers receiver Antonio Bryant over drug testing, saying the matter should be resolved under grievance procedures set out in the league's collective bargaining agreement.
Bryant filed a lawsuit last month in U.S. District Court seeking to stop the NFL from requiring him to submit to drug testing. He contends that since the 49ers terminated his contract March 1, he is no longer under contract with the NFL.
Bryant's lawyer Peter Schaffer has said Bryant, who wasn't looking for another job in football from late July through the second week of October, began looking to join another NFL team and that the fight over drug testing was complicating that.
The NFL said in court documents filed Wednesday that its collective bargaining agreement still covers free agents.
Schaffer, who is based in Colorado, said he had read the NFL's latest filings only briefly and had no immediate comment Wednesday.
