NFL executive vice president Troy Vincent has announced he is no more a member or member of the NFL’s executive committee.
Vincent was one of several NFL owners who said during the NFL owners meetings last week that they did not want to see Brown, the Texans’ new owner, return to the organization.
Brown had previously served as an NFL vice president of football operations and a member since 2010.
Vincent said in a statement Tuesday that the NFL and the owners had “no further comment.”
Brown has previously said that he is open to working with the NFLPA and the NFL if the owners’ proposals to make collective bargaining and other measures more acceptable to players are implemented.
“If the NFL will come together and work with me, I will be open to work with them,” Brown told NFL Network’s Mike Mayock in December.
“I am very open to them and I believe they are the right people for this.
The NFLPA’s position is that it is time to put a stop to this lockout, and if that means that we need to go to the collective bargaining agreement, we will, we’ll make that case.
“We have a lot of players who have been playing their hearts out for this organization, and we all know that they want to get the best possible deal.” “
I believe that all owners should be able to work together,” he said in the interview with Mayock.
“We have a lot of players who have been playing their hearts out for this organization, and we all know that they want to get the best possible deal.”
The Texans are one of four teams to lose a player to the NFL in the past three years.
In August, Houston’s quarterback Deshaun Watson was suspended for a year for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
That suspension was later reduced to a year, but Watson was still suspended.
The team said Watson will be eligible to play in the postseason this season and in 2017.
