Boomer Esiason, the Bengals QB and union rep, disrupted the club's attempt to transport replacement players by sitting in the street and blocking a bus from entering the team's Spinney Field practice facility. The bus was called to take players back to their hotel after the first day of practice. Striking teammates Bruce Kozerski and Tim McGee sat next to Esiason while about 15 other striking players stood behind them. Assistant GM Mike Brown came out to ask Esiason to clear the way and police arrived. The players complied without incident.
