NFL players voted to ratify the collective bargaining agreement with the league’s team owners. The CBA takes effect in 2021. The new agreement guarantees 10 more years of peace between the NFL and the National Football League Players Association. Here are a few highlights:

  • In 2021, the NFL regular season could be expanded from 16-17 games
  • The preseason will be reduced, likely to three games per team
  • Player-friendly changes to the sports disciplinary system and marijuana policy

In other NFL news, quarterback Ryan Tannehill agreed to a new deal with the Tennessee Titans that will pay him $118 million over 4 years with $91 million guaranteed.
