Tracking NFL players’ CBA votes: Unofficial tally on the new proposal

As NFL players prepare to cast their votes on whether to ratify the proposed collective bargaining agreement, several took to social media to voice their concerns or support — shedding light on how polarizing such a pact can be.

Several of the NFL’s stars vociferously stated their plans to vote against the proposed CBA, while others expressed full support and urged their colleagues to do the same. The NFLPA said in a statement Thursday that the voting will remain open until Thursday, March 12, at 11:59 p.m. ET.

“Health and Wellness of our men is always the most important aspect,” San Francisco 49ers veteran cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted. “There is no price you can put on that and that is why I Voted No.”

Others, such as New York Giants offensive lineman Nate Solder, supported the deal, saying it benefits the league’s “core players” who make significantly less money than the stars who have opposed it.

Here’s our unofficial tally of NFL players who have made their votes known via social media (note: some tweets were made prior to Thursday). This is not meant to be a full representation of the vote among the more than 2,000 NFL players. It’s important to note that it will take a majority of the players to approve the CBA, and this file is merely an unofficial tally of players who have made their votes known via social media.

And, we’ll aim to update as more players share their voting intentions.
