PHOENIX (AP) -- NFL union chief Gene Upshaw says there could be some labor unrest later this year if the owners decide to opt out of the collective bargaining agreement.

Speaking at the union's annual Super Bowl news conference, Upshaw threatened a strike or a decertification of the union. The later tactic helped the union get free agency following the 1987 strike.

Some owners have indicated the current agreement is leaving some teams tight on cash. The agreement that was reached in March 2006 gave both sides the right to opt out of the deal in November.
