NFL players ratify new CBA

AP

The NFL’s players have voted today to ratify a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, allowing the league year to begin.

Jay Glazer of FOX Sports had the first report that the deal has been approved.

“Just got word from a source they have received enough votes! Let the league year begin,” Glazer wrote on Twitter. “The players have voted to ratify the new CBA!”

It had to clear a few last hurdles today — including testing for human growth hormone and appeals of league discipline for personal-conduct policy violations — but the bottom line is that the NFL year is now underway.

  1. I am split on the Blood testing thing. While i don’t want to see cheaters in the NFL, I am afraid if they do test we will not be able to have a season because each team will have 4 players left, if that.

    On the whole this is great news. The NFL is solid for 10 years. They got a rookie cap which is great. The only big beefs i have are the practice rules as i think we will always have to wait till the 4-5th week for really good football to be played under this system.

  2. i literally thought that i would never see this post…whew…bring on football!

  3. Maybe NOW we can press on without any more mouthing off from the likes of the big mouth Steeler safety? Hope so!

  4. How and why is Jay Glazer announcing this on Twitter? The Commissioner has a Twitter account. Also reading on Twitter that the actual teams have not yet been notified.

  5. Final vote on the document presented by Commissioner Goodell.

    TAKE IT – 2,856

    LEAVE IT – 147
