NFLPA chooses not to reduce agent fees

The NFL Players Association indeed considered the possibility of reducing agent fees from three percent to two percent of contract value. But all they did was consider it.

Per multiple sources, the NFLPA decided not to reduce agent fees from three percent to two percent. The discussion and the decision came at the union’s annual meeting, in Hawaii.

As one source explained it, the discussions focused instead on educating players on their right to negotiate a lower fee than three percent.

Two sources told PFT that a small contingent of players, including Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman and Giants running back Rashad Jennings, advocated for a reduction in fees. Whether this means it will come up again at future meetings, now that Sherman is a member of the NFLPA Executive Committee, remains to be seen. One source described the effort as being “tabled” for now.
