NEW YORK (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell praised President Donald Trump’s “leadership and determination” for pushing through an aspect of the revamped North American trade agreement that would allow local TV ads to be shown in Canada during Super Bowl broadcasts.

Goodell issued a statement Tuesday Jordan Mills Jersey , two days after the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement was set up. The deal still needs congressional approval.

Under the new pact, the NFL could receive more money for its Super Bowl broadcasting rights in Canada. That’s because the agreement effectively dismisses a 2015 ruling by Canada’s TV regulator that said only the airing of the Super Bowl in Canada — and no other programs in that country — must show U.S. ads instead of Canadian commercials.

“We greatly appreciate President Trump’s leadership and determination in bringing about a resolution to our intellectual property issue in Canada,” Goodell said.

The NFL and Trump have been at odds for more than a year over players who kneel or silently demonstrate in some other way during the national anthem to protest police brutality and racial injustice.

The draft started two months ago tomorrow. And all but 17 of the draft picks have signed their rookie deals.

Per a source with knowledge of and access to the full list of rookie contracts, the collection of remaining unsigned players includes 12 first-round picks, three second-round picks, one third-round pick Authentic Harrison Smith Jersey , and one fifth-round pick.

Leading the way is Browns quarterback Baker Mayfield. While post-2011 rookie contracts contain few terms about which to haggle, two important factors provide the basis for back-and-forth: (1) whether the guaranteed money will be subject to offset language, preventing double-dipping; and (2) the cash flow of the signing bonus.

Given that Mayfield at one point considered going without an agent, his agents may feel compelled to justify his decision by driving a hard bargain on either or both points. Two years ago, Chargers defensive end Joey Bosa held out through training camp and the preseason over these issues.

With the Browns supposedly not inclined to use Mayfield this year, there’s less urgency on their part to get him signed. But they’d surely still like to avoid the distraction of a holdout Jack Doyle Jersey , which gives Mayfield some leverage.

Beyond the top 10, where seven players remain unsigned, it should be easier to work out these contracts. There’s a cluster of unsigned players at the bottom of round one, with an impasse (if there is one) focusing on the handling of payments and guarantees in the fourth year of the contract.
