On March 28, 2011, four former NFL players, including Defensive End Carl Eller Hall of Fame, sued the NFL in hopes of joining current players in their antitrust fight against the league. The 44-page lawsuit, filed in Minneapolis Federal Court, sought class action status on behalf of all former players. Retirees wanted the NFL ban lifted to ensure their pensions and health care remained funded. According to the action, these benefits would end if a collective agreement were not extended until March 11, one year after the expiry of the last one.  The NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) is an employment contract that reflects the results of collective bargaining between the National League Football Players Association (NFLPA) and the National Football League (NFL) (the commissioner and team owners of the 32 teams).
