Players union head says Goodell not trusted

NEW YORK - The head of the NFL players association isn't a big fan of the commissioner.

Union leader Domonique Foxworth says NFL players don't trust Roger Goodell because of the Saints bounty case, in particular.

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

Foxworth's comments came during a conference call Tuesday, days before union representatives meet with NFL officials at the scouting combine in Indianapolis, a theme he previously 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.
