NFL Players Association president Eric Winston said Thursday the NFL Players’ Association would be “ready to support” a new sweat-free outdoor blanket that the league’s owners will unveil Friday.
The new blanket will be available for purchase at a cost of $15 per month.
The league is currently offering the blanket for $20.
The new blanket comes after a report earlier this month that the NFLPA was exploring a sweat-less option for its stadiums, but there have been no firm details on the idea.
“We want to make sure the players have a great experience playing football, and that includes playing on the field,” Winston said.
“So we’re looking at all of those options and all of the new ones that are coming out, and we want to be ready to support that and to support the players.”
Winston also said the NFL would likely begin the process of selling the new blanket this year, although the NFL did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
The NFLPA, which represents the NFL’s biggest stars, is in the process to finalize a new collective bargaining agreement with the players’ union, which will include a new salary cap, per ESPN’s Adam Schefter.
The NFL is also set to hold its owners meetings in San Francisco on Friday, with the new collective agreement expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
