More and more NFL players are coming out of the woodwork to note that they voted no on a potential new collective bargaining agreement with the NFL.
That now includes Green Bay Packers NFLPA player rep, future Hall of Famer Aaron Rodgers. The quarterback took to social media on Wednesday to blast the proposed new CBA and say he voted no on it.
This seems to be a common theme when it comes to NFL players. The idea of adding a regular-season game without much of a benefit for players could end up being a sticking point.
Rodgers also points to the potential of an expanded playoff field that would include one extra team in each conference. His primary focus was on only one team in both the AFC and NFC getting a first-round bye.
Remember, Green Bay earned the No. 2 seed and a bye last season. It would have had to play Wildcard Weekend if the new playoff format were in place.
San Francisco 49ers play rep Richard Sherman, a harsh critic of the NFL, backed up Rodgers on Twitter.
The NFLPA executive committee voted to send the CBA proposal to the entire union late Tuesday night.
Based on what we’ve heard from players, it’s unlikely to pass.
