Changes are coming.
Yesterday’s midnight deadline has come and passed with news finally breaking early this morning that the NFL Player’s Association has voted to pass the proposed CBA.
One source said the final player vote on the NFL’s new CBA was 1019-959. It was that close.

Key points from the new CBA:
* The NFL will soon have 17-game regular seasons, 3-game preseasons
* The playoffs will include 7 teams per conference, with just one bye apiece
* Teams CANNOT use both the franchise and transition tag this year (i.e. Cowboys or Titans)
10 more years of labor peace.

How this affects the 2020 season, especially in light of the coronavirus news, is to be determined.
Stay tuned for more details.
