Per Schefter, Thursday's vote with all 32 team owners wasn't unanimously approved. The initial agreement comes in the wake of Schefter reporting the proposed CBA would expand the playoff field from six to seven teams in each conference and increase the regular-season schedule to 17 games. The proposed 17-game schedule wouldn't be in place until 2021 if the CBA is approved. NFL Network's Tom Pelissero noted how players who signed contracts under a 16-game schedule would be compensated for an additional game the league will "probably" move forward with the expanded playoffs regardless of the CBA vote since the owners don't believe they need player approval for that change. NFLPA president Eric Winston tweeted after the league's vote that "no deal is finalized until the players vote."
