All 10 players in the Brady vs. NFL case have agreed to drop their demands to be free agents as a settlement for the lawsuit, but Logan Mankins and Vincent Jackson, who were screwed by the labor situation last year, still want some money, according to CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman.

Lawyers for Mankins and Jackson reportedly want $10 million in compensation for each player before signing off on dismissing the lawsuit, and that is one of the final holdups for a CBA resolution. 

“The lawsuit against the NFL cannot be settled until all the plaintiffs agree and as of late Wednesday night, the source said, Mankins and Jackson were still seeking payment. The NFL, thus far, refuses to agree,” Freeman said.
