NFL players voted in favor of the proposed new collective bargaining agreement, which signals 10 years of labor peace, increased sales share for players, additional benefits for former players, an extension to an NFL regular season with 17 games and more playoff teams.

The league`s owners only accepted a proposal for the NFLPA executive committee to vote against it quickly. The league met a week later with the NFLPA for a final round of negotiations, and only small changes were made.

NFL players have approved a new employment contract with the league, which includes a 17-game regular season, higher salaries, increased turnover chart scales and higher pensions for current and former players. Both sides completed the task just before the start of the 2020 league, so most of the changes to the agreement will take effect in March. Negotiations began in April 2019, nearly two years before the last CBA expired, and ended with an agreement less than a year later. Other important provisions of the agreement are higher minimum wages for players, improved performance for current and former players, extended executives and coaching executives, as well as changes in the NFL`s drug and discipline policy, ESPN reported. The share of players in the league`s sales will increase from 47% to 48% in 2021, and will increase to at least 48.5% each year the regular season games are played, the network reports. The new deal also gives the NFL the ability to add a wild-card team to each conference, adding two more games to the wild-card weekend, NFL.

Tretter, the recently elected president of the NFLPA, said in a statement after the agreement was approved. „We take a larger share of sales, achieve a significant increase in minimum wages and increase our performance after the career.
