Jaguars DE Calais Campbell has been voted to multiple Pro Bowls throughout his NFL Career, and is the Jaguars Players Union Representative. He is a player that has earned the respect of his peers, and is a voice of the players. He recently spoke to Michael DiRocco of ESPN and had a lot to say about how the players feel as a group in regards to a potential 17 game schedule.
"When I talk to the guys, I don't think many people want to do it. Really, you talk to guys and I don't think anybody wants to do it. It's going to be very, very tough. I know the ownership's really hard on it. We're definitely talking, trying to figure out what we need to do, how we can make this thing work. It's going to be a process, but 17, that's very tough.", Campbell said via ESPN.
The current CBA ends at the conclusion of the 2020 season and owners have made it clear they want to push for an extended regular season schedule.
