WASHINGTON (AP) - NFL players union chief DeMaurice Smith says the league isn't exactly refuting his organization's claim of collusion.
 
    
The NFL Players Association claimed in U.S. District Court in Minnesota on Wednesday that the 32 teams had a secret salary cap in place during the uncapped 2010 season, and that it cost players at least $1 billion in wages. On Thursday, outside of union headquarters, Smith repeated those charges.
 
    
Said Smith: "It doesn't sound like you're denying the existence of collusion, does it?"
 
    
On Wednesday, hours after the court action, the NFL issued a statement saying "the union's claims have absolutely no merit and we fully expect them to be dismissed."
