Union Announces End of T. Vincent's Term as President
Troy Vincent's term as president of the NFL Players Association has expired, the union announced on its Web site.
It's not clear whether the former NFL defensive back will remain with the union in another capacity. He is viewed by many within the league as a possible successor to Gene Upshaw, the executive director of the Players Association, when Upshaw retires.
It's also not clear who will succeed Vincent as president of the union, which currently is holding its annual meeting in Hawaii.
"I struggle to describe... the impact Troy Vincent has had as our president," Upshaw said in a written statement posted on the union's Web site. "Troy will be remembered as one of the NFLPA's great leaders. I've worked with past presidents like John Mackey, Bill Curry, Mike Kenn, Tom Condon and Trace Armstrong, and all were willing to make sacrifices and risk their careers to advance the cause of the players. Troy joins these men in leaving his footprints in the sand of time and setting the standard for our next leader. Troy, we will miss you, and we thank you for your concern and leadership as NFLPA president."
