Yes, I understand that a big part of the new CBA was "locked in" contracts. That will be challenged. With this many rookies/2nd year starters I expect it sooner than later.
If I understand it correctly not honoring your rookie deal means the team is not required to pay you any part of that contract. No guaranteed money.
It means you play for your contract or sit out and wait to get traded (which teams can NOW afford to do because their contracts are cheaper and without penalty.)
Wont matter the NFLPA signed off on this deal.
