CBA on players "sitting out".

    Does anyone have a handle on how the NFL collective bargaining agreement treats players sitting out for a portion of the year, ostensibly to get a re-done contract, or to get other things, or is it covered in the individual contracts?
    Journalism is dead, it's been replaced by creative writing aka fake news.
    Critical thinking is pretty much dead too. I miss the hearsay rule.
    The concept of "ethic" has been stripped from the Journalism curriculum.

    One thing for sure, if they sit out games when not injured or otherwise have a problem like a family thing, they lose game checks. They don't get paid. I think the team can fine them, too.
    Talent can get you to the playoffs.
    It takes character to win when you get there.

  • They don’t get paid. After 8 games (I think) the year also doesn’t toll so that year contract just goes to the year after — why nobody holds out that long.
