    Post NFL Players Approve Collective Bargaining Agreement

    The votes are in. Per ESPN’s Adam Schefter (via Twitter), NFL players have ratified the proposed collective bargaining agreement, signaling another era of labor peace between the union and the league. The new CBA will run through the 2030 season.

    The final count was incredibly close. About 80% of dues-paying players made their voices heard — which, as Brooke Pryor of tweets, was more than many expected — and 1,019 players voted to approve against 959 votes to reject. The prospect of playing out the 2020 season under the old CBA was very real, and that could have resulted in a work stoppage in 2021.

    A few highlights:

    The playoffs will expand to seven teams per conference in 2020;
    We will see a 17-game season at some point in the near future, perhaps as early as 2021;
    There will be an increase in minimum salaries;
    Players will obtain a bigger share of the league’s total revenue (48-48.5%);
    Rosters will expand from 53 to 55 players (with active rosters increasing from 46 to 48 players). However, the two extra players will be practice squad players;

    Practice squads will expand from 10 to 14 players;
    Fifth-year options for first-round picks from 2018 forward will be fully-guaranteed (not guaranteed for injury only), will be based on performance, and can be as high as the franchise tag number for the player’s position;
    All pension amounts increase by 10%;
    There will be no marijuana-related suspensions.
