It means less practice time and less mandatory time on OTA's (so I'm sure coaches will be a tad upset, it the Players' Union gets its way on this one. *Right of First Refusal clause This is a big one for owners. Basically, Teams with free agents will be able to match offers for ANY free agent signing. I'm sure the Union will not bend on this one. I'm with the players on both. The NFL is a huge money-maker, and owners are getting scared. All 32 franchises are in the top 50 money-makers, so the owners really can't afford to have any games missed....even pre-season.
