    NFL owners approve six-year CBA extensionESPN.com news services


    NFL owners have approved a six-year extension of the collective bargaining agreement by a vote of 30-2 Wednesday night.

    Buffalo and Cincinnati were the two teams to vote against the proposal, according to ESPN's Chris Mortensen.

    ESPNEWS reports that Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones briefly left the owners' meeting shortly before the 8 p.m. deadline the owners set to decide on the extension and told the waiting throng of reporters that owners were "getting close, getting close," but that it would take about "30 minutes" before anything was known. Jones did not offer any other details.

    Earlier Wednesday, the NFL moved back the waiver deadline for teams to get below the salary cap from 9 p.m. ET Wednesday to 11 p.m. ET.

    Free agency is set to begin at 12:01 a.m. ET Thursday.

    GRAPEVINE, Texas -- Labor peace was restored to the NFL when the owners agreed to the players' union proposal Wednesday, extending the collective bargaining agreement for six years.



    There were no further details on the agreement, including whether it includes expanded revenue sharing.



    The vote was 30-2, with Buffalo and Cincinnati, two low-revenue teams, voting against it.


    "On behalf of the players, the NFLPA staff and the negotiating team, we are pleased that this process has finally concluded with an agreement," Gene Upshaw, executive director of the NFL Players' Association, said in a statement. "This agreement is not about one side winning or losing. Ultimately, it is about what is best for the players, the owners and the fans of the National Football League.

    "Moving forward, this new agreement gives us the opportunity to continue our unprecedented success and growth."


    Free agency, put off twice by the protracted negotiations between the owners and players, now will start at 12:01 a.m. Friday.



    "It was a good compromise," said Jim Irsay, owner of low-revenue Indianapolis. "We're happy with it -- 30-2 is a good vote."


    The agreement concludes weeks of contentious negotiations between the league and the NFL Players' Association. The new extension was expected to add $10 million to the 2006 salary cap, pushing it over $104 million. Without a CBA extension, the 2006 cap would have been $94.5 million.


    "The union is delighted," NFLPA attorney Jeffrey Kessler said. "The new CBA is a big leap forward for the players and means a fairer system for all. It also means seven more years of labor peace. Fans can now forget about the lawyers and owners and enjoy football."

    Earlier Wednesday, the NFL moved back the waiver deadline for teams to get below the salary cap from 9 p.m. ET Wednesday to 11 p.m. ET.


    Had the owners been unable to reach an agreement, it would have put a number of veterans on the street and would have limited the amount of money available for teams to spend in free agency. By reaching a compromise, the league managed to avoid an uncapped year in 2007, which would have allowed some teams to spend almost at will and keep others from spending at all.

    The crux of the debate over the last few days has centered on revenue sharing and the disparity between high- and low-income teams. Low-income teams such as Buffalo, Cincinnati and Indianapolis say that high-revenue teams -- Dallas, Washington and Philadelphia, for instance -- should contribute proportionately to the player pool because they can earn far more in non-football income such as advertising and local radio rights.

    Those high-revenue teams might contribute only 10 percent of their outside money compared with 50 percent or more for low-revenue teams.

    Re: NFL has a new deal!

    That is great news! They were so far apart I didn't think they would get it done in time. Assuming a revenue sharing agreement was reached, the high income clubs are really going to be giving up alot of money. That would be a hard pill to swallow. If they did, it was for the good of the league. I tip my hat to them. Good job and thanks!

    Oh and don't forget that little $10,000,000 cap increase owners!

    Re: NFL has a new deal!

    yeah, I said the same thing Nick, the original post maybe was about the signing of Bruce? You never know, if it wasn't maybe we get another player, and still get bruce, I don't see any reason not to resign him now, if we don't its just totally ridiculous

    Great job, what a relief.................

    As long as both parties are still talking and free of resentment Isaac should remain a Ram in the next couple of days.

    Hallelujah!!!!!!!!!!!

    Re: NFL has a new deal!

    There's room for Bruce...UNLESS....he really does want to test the market. Everybody else has that same extra $10 mil that we have.

    As long as he wants to stay here, there shouldn't be a problem arriving at a mutually beneficial number. However, if he wants to go for the gold mine, the extra cap space neither helps nor hurts us.
    "Before the gates of excellence the high gods have placed sweat; long is the road thereto and rough and steep at first; but when the heights are reached, then there is ease, though grievously hard in the winning." --- Hesiod
