Breaking Down the NFLPA Grades: How Owners are Reacting and What It Means for Players

Katie Blackburn is unconcerned with NFLPA report card readings

In the NFL, some owners may choose to ignore the grades given by the NFL Players Association (NFLPA), while others, like Bengals executive V.P. Katie Blackburn, embrace them. Blackburn believes that feedback is essential for improvement and hopes that these grades will ultimately lead to better experiences for everyone involved.

This year’s grades revealed that the Bengals did not fare well in several categories, including treatment of families and the quality of their food/cafe services. However, the overall grade for the team’s owner was average.

Blackburn understands the importance of taking these grades seriously and making necessary changes. The NFLPA will continue to issue these grades in an effort to improve the working environment for players. Owners have the choice to either address the feedback and make adjustments or ignore it and potentially confirm the accuracy of the grades.

Despite any pushback from team owners, the grading process is proving to be effective. It serves as a catalyst for positive changes and provides players with valuable information about what to expect from different organizations. Ultimately, these grades aim to create a better, more player-friendly environment in the NFL.
