CBA Voting Deadline pushed back to Saturday from Thursday
Earlier today, the NFL Players Association announced that it has extended the voting window on the newly proposed collective bargaining agreement from Thursday at 11:59 PM to Saturday at 11:59 PM. NFL.com is reporting that the extension was approved after being voted on by the NFLPA’s board of representatives.
The NFLPA sent out a statement earlier today that read, “by a vote of our board of representatives, we have extended the voting deadline on the proposed new collective bargaining agreement to Saturday, March 14th at 11:59pm EDT. Every vote matters, and we encourage all players to review the materials sent via email in order to make an informed decision.”
Several marquee NFL players have voiced their disapproval of the newly proposed CBA, while some have come out in support of the proposal. Players like Russell Wilson, Aaron Rodgers, and Kenny Stills have come out against the new CBA proposal. However, guys like Detroit’s Devon Kennard and the Giants’ Nate Solder have voiced their approval of the new deal.
The 2020 League Year and 2020 free agency period are both set to begin at 4:00 PM EST on March 18th.
