NFL Looking At 18-Game Season With 16 Games Per Player Limit

According to the Wall Street Journal NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and league owners have proposed another idea for an 18-game schedule

What's interesting about this idea is that it would put a limit on how many games each individual player can participate in.

The current CBA will expire in 2021. "For us, it comes down to who players are as men, and is it good for us", Smith told ESPN. Or not at the expense of your team's best players being forced to miss two games a season?

Owners are enticed by the idea of a longer season considering the more revenue it could create. The NFLPA will fight hard to keep the season at 16 games, regardless of the olive branch of giving every player two games off.

The NFL and the NFL Player's Association (NFLPA) have begun their July negotiations on a new collective bargaining agreement (CBA) - with the hopes that all of the details for a new CBA can be ironed out before the start of the 2019 NFL regular season, with two years to spare.

Taiwan's President Pushes For UN Membership During US Trip
Taiwanese media broadcast footage of the clashes outside the Grand Hyatt, where Tsai is staying during her two-day USA trip. The official China Daily said Ms Tsai was "playing a game of brinksmanship" by building up Taiwan's military defence.

According to Andrew Beaton of the Wall Street Journal, the National Football League owners proposed lengthening the National Football League season from 16 games to 18 games, and capping the number of games players will be allowed to play each season at 16. "The union estimates that the average NFL career is 3.4 years, but an 18-game season would drop that to 2.8 years, or just below the league requirement to be eligible for a pension".

"No players are banging down my door asking me to think about this", said Eric Winston, president of the NFLPA. "That is crucial because players now become eligible for post-career benefits such as pensions and health insurance after three years". "That doesn't work", Smith told ESPN. It's easy to say it's more money. That solution would be used to protect the health of the players. Imagine teams like the New York Jets, Cleveland Browns, Pittsburgh Steelers, or Los Angeles Chargers having to use a backup kicker and punter for a couple of games.

Los Angeles Chargers running back Melvin Gordon has threatened to do the same thing, telling the team this week he wanted a new long-term contract with guaranteed money or he would sit out the final year of his rookie contract, in which he is set to make $5.6 million. It's an opinion whether you agree with him.
