Details of CBA Provisions Emerging from Today's NFL Owners meeting

We're getting tweets from those in the know that certain parameters regarding the new CBA have been reached and are being discussed at today's owners meeting. One says the Players have agreed to take a lesser percentage of the total revenue:

Among the details NFL commissioner Roger Goodell is revealing to owners Tuesday at the owners' meeting in Rosemont, Ill., is that in the next proposed agreement players will receive a 48 percent share of "all revenue," without the $1-billion-plus credit off the top that had been a point of contention in earlier negotiations, according to sources familiar with the presentation.

Under the new formula being negotiated, players will receive 48 percent of all revenue and will never dip below a 46.5 percent take of the money, sources said.

What is worrisome for the Panthers though is this latest rumor:

If and when there an agreement is reached, all players with four or more years of experience are expected to be unrestricted free agents, according to sources familiar with the talks. Certain tags will be retained but that still is being discussed.

I'm worried it suddenly got harder to re-sign DE Charles Johnson. Other news:

  • No vote is expected today
  • Teams will be expected to spend 90 to 93% of their salary cap
  • There will be a rookie wage scale but it is still being 'tweaked'

Keep checking back for more updates.
