The NFL Players Association is hoping to create a “one-stop shop” for players on how to contact their employers, according to a report in the Wall Street Journal.
The union says that’s the case for all players, regardless of whether they are signed to a franchise or a single-team contract, as the league has begun enforcing new concussion protocols.
The players are hoping to be able to make contact with their employers as soon as possible.
The new guidelines have not been fully enforced yet, and they’re still being tweaked.
It’s unclear how the new policy will work for players who have not yet been certified to work for an NFL team.
“Our hope is that we can get that protocol out of the way, so that they can make contact at the beginning of the season, before the new concussion protocol is put into place,” Mike Tran, the union’s executive director, told the Journal.
“Then they can be in a better position to get their contract renewed.”
