Section 2(c)Regular Season and Postseason
Commencing with a Club’s first regular season game, all players will be permitted at least one day off each calendar week (i.e., Sunday-Saturday) of the regular season. All players will be permitted at least three days off after playing a Thursday game unless the Club has consecutive Thursday games. In such a case, players will be permitted at least one day off following the first Thursday game, and players will be permitted at least three days off following the second Thursday game. Days off following Thursday games and days off under Article 24, Section 2 (Bye Weeks) of this Agreement shall satisfy the Club’s obligation to permit players at least one day off each calendar week of the regular season. During the postseason, all players will be permitted days off at the rate of four days per month as determined by the Club.
Notwithstanding Sections 1(a) and 1(b) of this Article, players on Clubs who play their first regular season game on Monday night, and who therefore report to preseason training camp forty-eight days prior to their first regular season game shall receive a total of seven (7) days off during the preseason, in any League Year in which the NFL elects to schedule four (4) preseason games. In any League Year in which the NFL elects to schedule three (3) or fewer preseason games (not including the Canton Hall of Fame Game or any American Bowl game scheduled around the date of the Canton Hall of Fame Game), such players will receive a total of nine (9) days off in the preseason.
