After a 10-day voting period, NFL players have voted in favor of a new collective bargaining agreement which will run through 2030. The approval was only separated by 60 votes, 1019-959. 

The new CBA entails: 

  • Labor peace through 2030
  • Regular season games expansion from 16 to 17 games, to start in 2021
  • Playoff field expands to 14 teams. Only the number one seed in each conference will receive a bye
  • An increase in minimum salaries
  • An increase in player's share of league revenue from 47% to 48.5%. 
  • A change in the league's drug policy and discipline. No suspensions for positive marijuana tests for players. The testing period has been limited to the first two weeks of training camp and the threshold for a positive test has been raised from 35 to 150 nanograms of THC. 
  • Significant benefits for current and retired players
  • Expanded rosters and practice squads

The NFL league year is set to begin on Wednesday, March 18. There is a chance that it could be postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
