Out of regard for the procedure and our partners at the NFLPA, we will have no more comment at this time.
As the last paragraph states, players need to talk about whether to accept these terms. The NFL Players Association will talk about Friday whether the union will authorize these terms, which have actually been worked out over the past 10 months.

48-485% split (approximately) in between 1,700players 52-515% split amongst 31 owners?! … Yet this formula is expected to make good sense. If we concur to an additional game a season, ♂ Not to point out the.5% just takes place. #KnowYourWorth https://t.co/v1jNZG7ml9
