The NFLPA Board of Player Representatives elected J.C. Tretter as the new President of the NFL Players Association on Tuesday. The Cleveland Browns center will begin his two-year term immediately.
“It’s an honor to be in this position to lead our player membership,” said Tretter, a seven-year NFL veteran. “This is what I’m passionate about, and I’m excited to fight to protect and advance the rights of all players, past, present and future.”
Tretter replaces Eric Winston, who served three consecutive terms before cycling off the NFLPA’s leadership because he was not on an NFL roster this past season. Tretter played at Cornell before being drafted by the Green Bay Packers in 2013. He signed with the Cleveland Browns in 2017 and has served as one of the team’s alternate player reps for the past two years.
Additionally, four new players were voted by the board to serve two-year terms on the Executive Committee: Alex Mack (treasurer), Calais Campbell, Malcolm Jenkins and Wesley Woodyard.
They will join returning Executive Committee members Sam Acho, Lorenzo Alexander, Thomas Morstead, Richard Sherman, Michael Thomas (New York Giants) and Benjamin Watson, who were all re-elected on Tuesday for two-year terms.
