Football Italian has learned that the NFL’s governing body, the NFLPA, has made an offer to the players and the union.
In a letter sent to the union’s president and players, the union asks for the NFL to reconsider its decision to shut down its players and players’ union and to allow the teams to resume play.
The letter also asks for an increase in pay for the players.
“We ask that the league reopen and allow all teams to return to action.
We ask that a new contract be negotiated and signed by all players and their representatives that includes full pay, health and safety guarantees, a collective bargaining agreement, and compensation for all of the players that we know are entitled to,” the letter reads.
According to ESPN, the letter was signed by two players who are on the NFLs negotiating committee.
The players say the offer does not include any money to the NFL for the lost revenues, but that they are willing to negotiate.
The union is currently negotiating with the NFL on a new collective bargaining deal that would include a salary cap, a reduction in the number of contracts the league allows, and a new labor agreement.
