Retirees Press for Inclusion in NFL Labor Talks
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller says retired NFL players were "not looking for a fight" when they filed a lawsuit against the league and the players' union earlier this month.

Eller says they are just looking to make sure they are not left behind while a new collective bargaining agreement is hammered out.

Eller is one of the plaintiffs in the lawsuit filed on July 4. A hearing is scheduled for Aug. 8, though a new deal could be in place by then. Negotiations have picked up steam in New York this week.
