    One would have thought this was settled a long time ago.

    The IRS has ruled that those collecting urine samples of players were employee of the league and not independent contractors. There is a lawsuit for years of past benefits.

    The Daily News reported Sunday that the NFL will replace all 80 of its DPAs next month and outsource their collections to a California company, Comprehensive Drug Testing, in order to avoid having to pay benefits to agents past and current. CDT handles collections for Major League Baseball and the NHL.
