CLEVELAND — Cleveland Browns center JC Tretter has been elected as the new president of the National Football League Players Association, the labor organization representing players in the NFL.

The NFLPA was established in 1956 to provide formal representation to negotiate compensation and collective bargaining agreement (CBA) terms.

On Tuesday, the NFLPA announced Tretter had been elected as president by the Board of Player Representatives.

Tretter will lead the player’s union as they prepare to vote on a proposed CBA that features potential changes to the NFL season, salaries, revenue distribution and player holdouts, among other proposed changes. He has already started work to get players across the NFL informed on the proposed CBA's pros and cons.

The main point of the proposed CBA is the addition of more football games and practices in the season. If passed, the CBA would add a 17th regular-season game, an extra wild card game and one to two additional weeks of practice, according to Tretter.

The voting window on the proposed CBA has been extended to Saturday to allow players to research and inform themselves on all of the proposed CBA’s points before casting their votes.
