A group of 28 retired NFL players, including Hall of Famers Carl Eller, Chuck Bednarik and John Hannah, filed a federal class-action lawsuit Tuesday against the NFL Players Association, union president DeMaurice Smith, New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady(notes) and former player Mike Vrabel(notes).

The suit claims that once the NFLPA decertified March 11, just prior to being locked out by the NFL, the defendants had “no authority” to negotiate, let alone agree to, the terms of retiree benefits during the labor dispute.
