NFL HALL OF FAMER MIKE SINGLETARY ENDORSES CYRUS MEHRI FOR NFLPA EXEC DIRECTOR
Mike Singletary: “Cyrus will take the union to the next level.”
WASHINGTON, D.C. (September 8) – NFL Hall of Famer Mike Singletary today endorsed Cyrus Mehri for Executive Director of the NFL Players Association. Endorsements for Mehri have piled up since he announced his intention to run for the position on HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel” two weeks ago. Several Hall of Famers and legends from around the league have stepped forward to support his candidacy. Now Singletary, among the fiercest linebackers in NFL history, joins the chorus.
Singletary issued the following statement:
“I’ve come to learn that Cyrus has fought for equal opportunity in coaching and in the front office for years. He supports what is fair and right, and he will do so on behalf of the players, ensuring that they are supported and well-represented. Cyrus has a multi-pronged plan: he is going to push for economic fairness for the players, he is going to create pathways to assist players in succeeding in life after retirement, and he is going to help prepare players to be leaders in society. Players deserve a choice as to who will serve them as NFLPA Executive Director. Players deserve Cyrus. He will take the union to the next level.”
