Yesterday, the NFLPA and league owners, including the New Orleans Saints, both voted to accept the new NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement.
The NFLPA has officially voted to accept the new National Football League Collective Bargaining Agreement coming weeks after the league owners voted to pass on the same CBA to the players and now it is a reality, one that the New Orleans Saints will be absolutely fine with.
The new CBA is good for the next ten years through the 2030 football season. This gives the NFL another eleven years of peace between the league, its owners, and the players. Below is a quote from Fox Sports about the new CBA and what it outlines.
“The NFL has a new labor deal that will extend through 2030, as the league’s players have approved the ratification of a new collective bargaining agreement by a vote of 1,019 to 959.
The deal includes several previously reported changes, such as the expansion of the playoffs by two teams in 2020 — one additional wild-card team in each conference, giving just the first overall seed a first-round bye — and increasing the length of the regular season to 17 games, although no sooner than 2021.”
