NFL players are now able to vote on the proposed Collective Bargaining Agreement, and several members of the Steelers have made their thoughts known regarding the proposal.

We are at the point in negotiations between the NFL and NFLPA that the proposed, and owner approved, Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) has been passed to the players for vote.

All that is needed for the CBA to go into effect is a majority vote.

That’s it.

With such an emphasis being on talking points like a 17-game schedule, an expanded playoff format among other topics, players are slowly making their vote public on social media and other avenues.

Like this from Miami Dolphins’ quarterback, and Harvard graduate, Ryan Fitzpatrick:

The Pittsburgh Steelers players are no different, and several, not all, players have taken to social media to make their thoughts and feelings known about the proposal. Everyone heard Maurkice Pouncey’s profanity-laced tirade over the topic, but other players have come out and said they are voting for, or against, the proposed agreement.

Check out the players who have made their thoughts public below...

(Editor’s Note: This article could be updated as more players could come out and speak publicly about their vote.)

The players have some time to get their votes in, and every player has the right to vote, but it isn’t mandatory. As long as the voting is majority for the CBA, the deal will become solidified and will likely go into effect immediately.
