SUMMARY: NFL Players Association general counsel Richard Berthelsen said yesterday said the cross-examination of Steve McNair was lengthy in yesterday's grievance hearing at Baptist Sports Park. "Our case was pretty brief, what made it long was the cross examination. But Steve did say what he's always said: He would love to be a Tennessee Titan and retire in that uniform, but yet it seems like the club is not allowing him to perform and that is why we're all here." Berthelsen said that both sides were respectful during seven-and-a-half hour hearing. "It was mainly irrelevant things, like, 'You weren't here much in the past, were you? So why do you want to be here now?," said Berthelsen, who indicated the Titans' biggest arguments centered on their concerns with his contract and the salary cap. Berthelsen said the union won a similar case nearly 20 years ago, when the Oakland Raiders banned RB Steve Smith from working out at their complex because they were looking to trade him. The arbitrator will try to make a decision by June 1. What do you think about this article? Post your comments below.
