NFL formalizes draft
WASHINGTON' - After three years of on-again, off-again
bargaining, peace finally came to the National Football League
yesterday 4hen the players association and te'am owners ap-
proved a five-year basic agreement which modified both the
college draft and the controversial Rozelle Rule.
SARGENT KARCH, executive director of the NFL Manage-
ment Council, said he expected formal signing of the contract
to take place Monday, subject to ratification by the union mem-
The college draft, which is now guaranteed at least, through
1986, will be held on or about May 1 each year, begining this
spring, but will be reduced from 17 rounds to 12.
If a free agent signs with a new club, his old club will be
compensated by predetermined choices in that/"year's college
draft ranging from a third-round choice to two, consecutive firs'-
round choices depending on the free agent's salary terms with
his new club.
However, any team signing a free agent must either own the
rights to whatever draft choices it will be required to surrender
or must trade for them, and, those choices may not be lower
than its own standing in the order of selection in the draft.
