Final answer: No opt out clause in CBA

After quite a bit of last minute back-and-forth on the topic, NFL Network’s Albert Breer reports there will be no opt-out clause in the upcoming CBA.

That means we’ll have labor peace for a decade, running through the 2021 NFL Draft at the very least.

Ultimately, both sides were reportedly wary of the other opting out. A two-way opt out was discussed, but finally discarded.

And that’s great news for football fans, not to mention media members who have talked enough labor for a lifetime.
