Dallas News is reporting that Jerry Jones thinks there’s a decent chance of the NFL Owners opting out of the NFL’s current collective bargaining agreement.
The owners have the right to opt-out of the CBA by November of this year. If that were to happen, the 2011 season would be the first uncapped season since 1993. 24 of the 32 owners would have to agree to keep the cap — meaning only 9 dissenters could end the salary cap era. Gene Upshaw mentions that, should the salary cap go away, it isn’t likely the player’s association would agree to another one.
As we all know, this would create doom and gloom in the league as the team with the highest payroll always wins the championships over teams with the lowest payroll in their respective league.
