After many breakthroughs on Saturday, NFL players aren’t resisting the excitement of owners anymore.
A high-ranking NFLPA source told the Sun-Times that the deal is on track to be completed on Monday.
A number of things have to happen without a hitch, from the players’ executive committee recommends to approve the 10-year deal, along with the 32 team reps and the 10 players named in the Brady versus NFL lawsuit. Then, more than 50 percent of the 1,900 players has to sign off on the deal, although that’s considered a formality.
The NFLPA also has to initiate plans to re-certify.
According to NFL.com, the league year would start Wednesday and training camps would open on Friday. But ESPN.com reported that some clubs could report for camp on Wednesday.
