Proposed CBA goes to NFLPA members for vote
The NFLPA Board of Player Representatives voted to send the proposed collective bargaining agreement to membership for a full vote, according to NFLPA assistant executive director of external affairs George Atallah.
The vote was 17-14 (Richard Sherman abstained)
The next stage of the process is which all NFL players (1,900) vote with a majority required to approve and ratify the new CBA.
NFL owners and NFLPA representatives met for four hours Tuesday, with the two sides further discussing details of a new CBA proposed and approved by team owners last week.
The proposal approved by owners contained some significant changes that don't affect this season including a 17-game regular season, expanding the playoffs by two teams, removed a $250K cap on 17th game check for existing contracts, but rejected a proposal to shorten the offseason. There will also be a shift in the NFL's policy on marijuana testing and punishment.
