NFL owners agree on 17-game season starting in 2021

The NFL’s club owners agreed on Tuesday evening to extend the regular season. As a result, 17 of the 16 games will be played from the upcoming season, and only three pre-season games will be played in return.

NFL players agreed to additional games as part of their 2020 collective agreement, giving the league an opportunity to extend the season as early as 2021. The previous collective agreement stated that the total number of games in the preseason and regular season would be limited to 20.

“This is a memorable moment in the history of the NFL,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said in a press release. “

Although the NFL Players Association approved the change last year, some players have spoken out against the planned changes in the past few weeks. The player’s salary does not change, but is paid over 18 weeks instead of 17 weeks.
