Benson will appeal his three-game suspension on Tuesday. The centerpiece of his argument should be that the league had no power to discipline him for actions occurring while he was locked out, and that the NFLPA had no ability to exempt him from the league’s general position that players won’t be punished for arrests occurring during the lockout. If that fails, Benson should seriously consider filing legal action against the NFLPA for breach of the duty of fair representation — especially since the reconstituted union has compromised Benson’s rights based on events occurring at a time when the union wasn’t a union.
