Compromise possible in push for 18-game schedule

NFL rumors: Owners pitch 18-game season with creative twist | Here's how it could impact playing time for notable stars

The idea of an 18-game season is nothing new.

The current CBA will expire in 2021.

Along with an 18-game schedule comes a stipulation that players can only play in sixteen of those games.

The 49ers' Richard Sherman has said players need to be willing to strike assertively, and the NFLPA's Executive Director DeMaurice Smith sent a memo to players' agents warning them to plan for loss of wages in the 2020-21 season, and potentially lose the season entirely.

National Football League owners are constantly looking for ways to increase their profits and commissioner Roger Goodell is usually right there with them. The NFLPA will fight hard to keep the season at 16 games, regardless of the olive branch of giving every player two games off.

Jenelle Evans claims dog killing incident was 'publicity stunt'
She added, "I hear gunshots all the time at my house and my neighbor down the road even shoots his cannon sometimes". Evans was sacked from Teen Mom 2 in light of the headline-grabbing incident. "I'm speechless.

The NFL Players Association (NFLPA) played down the possibility of an expanded 18-game season.

For the same reasons that an 18-game season would make both sides more money, the players say it would also undercut several points they're focused on addressing in this round of bargaining.

The longer season would require a shortening of the preseason schedule, which is typically four games for teams. That would add $15 million to each team's salary cap and give players more money.

"Why is it our job to figure out how to make 18 games work as players?" The minimum required service time for players to receive a pension and long-term health benefits is three years. "That is crucial because players now become eligible for post-career benefits such as pensions and health insurance after three years". You tell someone you're going to work longer, and you figure out how to make it work? 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. If the team did not honor his request, he said he wanted to be traded. It's an opinion whether you agree with him. "I found it disappointing that people viewed it [in] a negative way because he made the decision on the back of his work".
