The players have voted to pass the new collective bargaining agreement and details are starting to roll in. Dan Graziano breaks it down on ESPN.

Highlights

  • The new CBA will expand the NFL’s playoff field by two teams starting with the 2020 season and allow owners the option to expand the regular season from 16 games to 17 games as early as 2021.
  • 11 year deal.   The proposed new deal runs through 2030, which means it runs for 10 years after the current deal was set to expire.
  • Owners will have a window from 2021 to 2023 to expand the regular season from 16 games to 17 games, should they choose to do so (and it’s expected they will).
  • Lower earning players benefit greatly. A player with less than one year of NFL experience is set to earn $510,000 this year under the current deal. That number rises to $610,000 in 2020 if the new deal is signed, and the minimum salary for players with less than one year of experience rises incrementally throughout the deal, reaching $1.065 million in 2030.

STATEMENT BY NFL COMMISSIONER ROGER GOODELL ON THE RATIFICATION OF THE NEW COLLECTIVE BARGAINING AGREEMENT

We are pleased that the players have voted to ratify the proposed new CBA, which will provide substantial benefits to all current and retired players, increase jobs, ensure continued progress on player safety, and give our fans more and better football.  We appreciate the tireless efforts of the members of the Management Council Executive Committee and the NFLPA leadership, both of whom devoted nearly a year to detailed, good faith negotiations to reach this comprehensive, transformative agreement.
