With the owners giving the players a 31-0 approved proposal for a new CBA, the ball is now in the players’ court. NFL Players Association president Kevin Maewae said in a statement released on Friday:
“Player leadership is discussing the most recent written proposal with the NFL, which includes a settlement agreement, deal terms and the right process for addressing recertification. There will not be any further NFLPA statements today out of respect for the Kraft family while they mourn the loss of Myra Kraft.”
Before agreeing to the owners’ proposal, the players would first have to take a majority vote to return the NFLPA to union status. Only then can they negotiate the new CBA. So now, we wait.
