Packer Bryan Bulaga post ominous tweet about lock-out
As NFL labor negotiations loom over the 2019 season, the NFL Players Association is already warning players to save money to prepare for a possible work stoppage in 2021.
Green Bay Packer RT Bryan Bulaga posted the following tweet from the NFLPA:
“Listen. Get two years of good money. Just save it.
That’s the best I can tell them. Some guys listen. Some don’t.
I hope the PA continues to come into our building,
having meetings with us and push that narrative.
They need to understand there’s already a good chance we are going to be locked out.
...Guys have to be fully aware of that.”
In an email earlier this year, NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith advised NFL agents to tell their clients to budget their income to account for a player strike or lockout by ownership. The NFL’s current collective-bargaining agreement expires after the 2020 season, and negotiations on the next deal are widely expected to be contentious.
“We are advising players to plan for a work stoppage of at least a year in length,” Smith wrote in the letter.
The NFL last experienced a lockout in 2011, when an impasse in negotiations led owners to bar players from team facilities from March to July of that year. The two sides managed to reach terms on a new CBA without any interruptions to the 2011 regular season.
NFL players haven’t held a strike since 1987 when some games were canceled, and owners turned to replacement players.
