The fact that vision coverage wasn't included/proposed until now is laughable.

The ideal scenario for the players:

- Higher minimum contracts for all positions
- Better healthcare/retirement packages
- Better money split
- More guaranteed contracts (you could start at year 1 being fully guaranteed and go on from there)
- Complete elimination of the franchise and transition tag.
- Completely revamped drugtesting policy (ie. no more weed bans)
- Reducing the power the Commissioner has
- Changing the hard cap to a soft cap with a tax (This would give the players more money to play with, I don't necessarily agree with this for competitive reasons, but the players as a whole should absolutely want this)

I wouldn't expect to get all of these, and getting some of them is probably going to require some concessions (ie expanded playoff/week structure). The devil is really in the details, what has to be given up to get what exactly.

  • Bonus payment of 1/17 of his paragraph 5 salary [up to $250K] to any player whose contract runs through a season when 17 games is played

This will not go over well.  Why cap it they will say?  Why not just add 1/17?

If you make less than 4.5 million/season you are going to vote yes. It is a really good deal for the 75% of guys who do not make generational wealth.

This section kind of stood out:

Active Players

• Life Insurance

Not "better life insurance". Just "life insurance".

Did...NFL players not already have that?

They are going to pass it.

Extra Roster Spots

Extra PR spots

100k added to minimum

More incentive based bonuses

2x 1.25 million exception for guys making less than 5 million

Better benefits

 

Those are all a big deal for the guys making job money in the NFL.

I mean, my entry level teaching job started me at $34,000 and gave me an employer paid $50,000 policy which cost them $2.00 a month.

Who is negotiating this?!?!

See my comment about negotiating. I don't expect it to ever happen, but it's something the players should want, it increases their leverage when it comes to contract years.

Missed this. How much we talking?

If the league is getting a 17th game, they should offer the following to start with:

 

Replace last preseason game

Either start an additional week earlier or extend season a week later to add 2nd bye week for all teams.

All players on roster eligible to play each week

 

Those cost the league nothing.

 

Now add a couple of extra roster spots and a couple of PS spots with no experience maximum (as proposed in new CBA)

Allow unlimited returns from IR (but still with the 8 week minimum)

Increase pay proportionately, ie an extra 1/16th for existing contracts.

 

Increase playoff pay from fixed amounts to 125%, 150%, 175%, 200% of regular game pay for wildcard, divisional, conference, and Super Bowl rounds

 

Those seem like fairly bare minimum things to ask for in exchange for the extra game.

I would imagine life insurance policy premium would run a bit higher for a professional athlete in a contact sport vs a teacher.
