First NFL owners took back roughly 5 percent of league revenues from the players in the collective bargaining agreement in 2011.

Next comes the system where the league continues to take money away from the players through fines. The league slapped a $7875 fine on Andre Caldwell for grabbing a facemask while covering on a punt return in the first quarter last Saturday at Seattle.

There were no other fines in the game — including no fine of the high-low blocks that led to Derek Wolfe’s neck injury.
