NFL players began to vote on a proposed new collective bargaining agreement Thursday. Voting will be open for the next week.
If the public opinions of two Rams stars are any indication, the vote is not going to go well for the league.
Still on his trip to Europe, Rams’ running back Todd Gurley tweeted his blunt response to Cody Davis’ Twitter request that “all NFL players should take time to read over the CBA proposal, weigh the pros and cons, then VOTE!”
Then … Rams’ superstar defensive tackle Aaron Donald came back swinging hard with this:
Vote HELL NO— AD_99 (@AaronDonald97) March 5, 2020
You heard the man: “HELL NO.”
Gurley and Donald have joined several high-profile NFL players in rebuking the — and like those players, both Gurley and Donald have received huge second contracts. Donald is averaging $22.5 million a season and is one of the highest paid defensive players in the NFL. Gurley signed a $60 million deal with $45 million in guaranteed money, the most ever for a running back.
Still, both men believe the CBA is not good for the overall NFL player community.
And they weren’t afraid of letting their opinion being known loud and clear.
