WASHINGTON, D.C.—In a professional sport where league owners are threatening to lock out players, making sure there’s a level playing field in labor negotiations is paramount.

Ultimately, the main goal of the players was to gain the lawmakers’ support in preventing NFL owners from imposing a lockout after next season.
The group of players who participated in the Capitol Hill visit besides Akers and Mawae were: Charlie Batch (Pittsburgh), John Booty (retired), Jason Brown (St. Louis), Ricky Brown (Oakland), Greg Camarillo (Miami),Kevin Carter (retired), Eugene Chung (retired), Danny Clark (N.Y.
