NFL owners and players have supposedly agreed to a plan that would call for the players’ executive group to vote on Monday to strongly consider accepting the CBA and recertifying as a union, a source said Saturday.
According to the source, movement in talks with the owners has put the 11-member NFLPA executive board in a spot to vote Monday to approve the 10-year collective bargaining agreement the owners came to conclusion on Thursday.
Under the new work, players would then start heading to training camps as early as Wednesday to physically vote on whether to recertify, with the potential that it will be official by Friday at the earliest, the source said.
Upon recertification of the union, free agency could launch at 2 p.m. ET on July 30 and rosters could stretch out to 90 players. Still undecided is when undrafted free agents would be able to ink contracts.
