The NFL Players Association has responded to Jacksonville Jaguars EVP Tom Coughlin’s asinine comments about voluntary workouts and buddy... they clapped back with a vengeance.

Here is NFLPA President Eric Winston’s statement in full:

“Our CBA definition of voluntary is the same as the actual definition of voluntary and prohibits anyone from threatening players to participate in voluntary workouts. This is precisely the reason players negotiated strict work rules and bright lines when it comes to offseason activities. We know, from experience, that not all coaches and executives will adhere to them and we always pursue any violations to protect our rules.”

Tom Coughlin is the boss who makes you feel bad for taking vacation days.
