DeMaurice Smith also willing to take a salary cut

Earlier Wednesday, Roger Goodell sent a letter to NFL owners indicating that he (and a number of other NFL employees) would take a serious salary cut if there was a work stoppage.

DeMaurice Smith, the Executive Director of the NFL Players Association, has one-upped him.

"NFL executives reducing salaries in the event of a lockout? If we have a deal by Super Bowl, I'll go down to 68 cents," Smith tweeted Wednesday.

Of course, it's much, much more likely that there's no "work stoppage" (ah, vague rhetoric) than it is that there's a labor deal in place within the next 10 days.

So Smith's salary is pretty safe. But that probably wasn't his point -- what he likely was implying is that, in the big scheme of things, "salary cuts" are pointless PR manipulations designed to curry favor with the fans.

None of that will matter, of course, if there's no football for fans to watch in 2011.
