There will be no opt-out clause in the NFL's new Collective Bargaining Agreement, according to the NFL Network's Albert Breer.

The new, 10-year agreement will run reportedly run through 2021 without either side having the option to escape from the deal early.

An opt-out cause was one issue previously holding up the negotiations, with the players reportedly insisting that it be included in the agreement. It is unknown why this provision was removed from the final agreement to be voted on by the players.
