  • Art Rooney II is pretty happy about the new CBA, and the fact the NFL has decided to move ahead with their offseason schedule.

Rooney ‘happy, relieved’ CBA is done

By: Bob Labriola,

Sometimes, a fair outcome of a negotiation is described as one where neither side is totally happy. Another way to look at it is whether each side got what it really wanted.

From the initial general analysis of the extension of the NFL Collective Bargaining Agreement that was ratified by a vote of the players last weekend, the new deal falls into the second category.

”That was actually what the union told us was their main objective from the beginning,” said Steelers President Art Rooney II. “When we started the negotiations, they made it clear that what they wanted to accomplish if we were going to extend the thing was to – and they described them as the core players – they wanted to take care of the core players.
