The NFL has stated on its NFLLabor.com website that “[n]o current player needs to take a pay-cut as a result of our proposal.” (http://nfllabor.com/category/faqs) The players of the National Football League are prepared to sign an agreement today that guarantees that the salary cap will not decrease and that there will be no decrease in retired players' or other benefits under the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA).

At the last bargaining session - because we felt that it was in the best interest of the fans, the players and the League to work on a long term agreement without the unknowns of the uncapped year - we went even further to propose a one year extension of the CBA that froze the salary cap at the 2009 level. The League rejected the players’ proposal.

Our representatives today renewed that proposal and also offered to negotiate a longer extension on the premise of the League’s statement that it will guarantee that the salary cap will not decrease and that retired players’ and other benefits will not decrease.

We have asked the League to meet with our representatives immediately to attempt to reach an extension of the agreement.

So they asked for a one year extension, the league said no, now they're asking for a longer extension? It seems to me like nothing is gonna get worked out.

If they sign the CBA, that makes Brandon Marshel a UFA right?

It's too late to make an extension, free agency has already started. If they make a new deal, it would not reflect this off season's moves.
