Bills Cut More Employee Benefits During NFL Lockout

According to the Associated Press, the Buffalo Bills have suspended payments to their employees' pension plans and 401(k) funds during the lockout. This is in addition to cutting employee salaries.

Bills CEO Russ Brandon confirmed the news to the AP on Tuesday, saying the team may reinstate these payments based on "our financial performance." Brandon said employees had already been notified of the change.

This is the first report of a team cutting non-salary benefits. The NFL still hasn't missed any games, and the financial impact of the lockout is still unknown. The Bills are not alone in cutting salary benefits, as the Baltimore Ravens, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins, and New York Jets have all done likewise.

Players, owners, and other NFL employees will likely have to wait until at least next Friday, June 3, for more news. That's the next day the two sides will be in Judge Susan Nelson's court to hear arguments on extending the owners' lockout.
