In the midst of the lockout, there are many questions surrounding the futures of many NFL players.
Some are uncertain whether they will return to the league or not, while others are not sure what is the best way to move forward.
But one thing is certain: the NFL’s players want to play.
So, as they prepare to go into their final season, here are some questions they need to ask themselves as they plan out their final years in the NFL:Who is the future of the NFL?
Is it a team that has enough talent to win a Super Bowl?
Or a team in which the talent level is not that high to win one?
Can the team find the players who will fit into its roster?
Is it a franchise that is on the rise and is still struggling?
Or is it a contender that is struggling?
The NFL has been in the midst on the brink of a major labor dispute since the 2012 season.
The owners of the league were adamant that the players were entitled to a raise from the league minimum of $765,000 per year to the $1 million per year it is now.
But players argued that this was too much.
Players are owed a raise, they argued, and the owners were being unreasonable.
But a union-backed arbitration process has cleared the way for the players to negotiate a raise that they feel is reasonable and fair.
This is not a perfect world for the league, which is in the middle of a contract that it has been negotiating for more than three years.
There is a lot of uncertainty in the contract, which has a $12 billion price tag.
Players like Ryan Clady and Aaron Donald have already signed long-term deals with new teams, while another two have agreed to extend their contracts with their current teams.
But the league has a huge amount of leverage in the negotiations and is not willing to give up anything to save a contract.
Is it better for players to play on a team with the salary cap, which will be at least $70 million per season?
Or does the salary-cap system make it easier for the NFL to develop its own players?
Is a player a franchise or a player that needs to go somewhere else?
How do the teams make their money?
Will the league be able to afford to keep all of the players it has?
Are there players that have been on other teams in the past that the NFL can’t afford to let go?
Does the NFL have to play with or without stars?
Is the salary for a star an incentive for the franchise to keep a star?
Can a franchise get rid of a star like Deion Sanders and use the money to sign another star?
Is there room for a young superstar like Chris Harris Jr.?
Is it the right thing for the teams to keep players like DeSean Jackson?
Are the contracts for players that are on the roster realistic and fair?
Can teams afford to give them the money that they are owed?
Can the owners pay the players?

How does the league maintain its stars?
Are stars being compensated in a way that is fair to the players and the teams?
Does it give players a chance to develop and make a living?
Is players getting enough of an opportunity to work out a long-range deal with a team?
Are teams getting the best players in the world?
How are they getting them?
Can players get better contracts than they are getting?
Can they keep them?
Are there any problems with the contract?
Is everyone on the same page?
How do the players plan on playing?
Are they working out long-haul deals or trying to work around the cap?
Are their players happy with the deals that they have made?
Are they happy that they get paid enough to get ahead?
Is this the right time for them to retire?
How many players can the players sign in the next five years?
Are each player on the team receiving the maximum guaranteed contract they can get?
Is each player being paid a fair salary?
How much does each player get?
How much can each player earn?
Is their salary a salary that will be a benefit for the team?
How can players afford to play in their last season?
Is there a way to reduce the cap to keep the salary level the way it is?
Is that a way for players and teams to stay together and be more competitive?
