Bleacher report The NFL Players Association, which represents all 32 NFL teams, has officially announced that players will not be paid per game for the 2017 season.
The move by the league is a result of the players’ association’s new contract negotiations with NFL Players Inc., which began earlier this month.
According to the union, the contract is not only about the amount of money players are paid but also about the impact on the league’s revenue streams.
The agreement also includes more money for players to travel to training camps, but no additional money is being paid to players for playing in those events.
The new deal will also affect the NFL’s salary cap.
The league has a $126.5 million cap, which the union expects to grow to $137 million in 2022.
According the union’s statement, players have received “a record amount of respect from our colleagues, players and fans throughout the league,” which includes a lot of criticism about the league and players.
“This agreement is not just a win for players.
It is also a win by the NFL and the NFL Players’ Association, a win in our communities and a win that all of us can be proud of,” NFLPA President Eric Winston said in a statement.
