Doc, according to the portion of the cba you posted is it too late now for a grievance to be filed? Or:
2- could one have been filed and we just don't know about it Or:
3-The Texans decided it isn't worth it and they will just take their chances that Reed will be ready to go for the season.
I don't know that it would be "too late," but I'm not sure that if filed now it would cover monies already paid out to Reed. In that case, it might not be productive to do so, at this time at least. I'd have to defer the definitive
answer to that.
