Article 53
Retirement Plan

Maintenance and Definitions

The current terms of the Bert Bell/Pete Rozelle NFL Player Retirement Plan (the “Retirement Plan” ), a jointly administered TaftHartley multiemployer pension plan, will be continued and maintained in full force and effect during the term of this Agreement, except as amended below, but no further benefits will accrue except as provided in Section 3 of this Article. The Retirement Plan, and all past and future amendments thereto as adopted in accordance with the terms of that Plan, are incorporated by reference and made a part of this Agreement; provided, however, that the terms used in such Plan and the definitions of such terms are applicable only to such Plan and shall have no applicability to this Agreement unless the context of this Agreement specifically mandates the use of such terms.
