NFL Lockout: Bills Will Reimburse 401k, Employee Wages

One of the most controversial moves of the NFL lockout was the reduction in pay and benefits for team employees. The Buffalo Bills cut 401k benefits and salaries for all team employees during the lockout, and that decision received the most vitriol among the fan base.

Yesterday, Mark Gaughan of the Buffalo News first reported that the Bills would reimburse all employees despite the Boston Globe's Greg Bedard reporting in May that the team would not do so. Not only will the Bills be reimbursing lost wages, the team will also pay into employees' 401k plans retroactive to March, when benefits were first cut.

The Bills were not alone in cutting benefits around the league. Buffalo sports fans seemed to react more harshly knowing that blue-collar workers were being affected by the extended lockout. Rest easy, Bills fans. The team is doing right by them now.
