NFL Shield/NFL

(NEW YORK) -- DeMaurice Smith has been re-elected as Executive Director of of the NFL players union.

Smith won his third team as the executive after being first elected in 2009 as the replacement for former Director Gene Upshaw who passed away in 2008.

In the previous election three years ago for the Players Association executive director, Smith ran unopposed. He faced eight challengers this year. 

The next election for the NFLPA in 2018 will be one of its most crucial.  After the 2020 season, the current collective bargaining agreement is set to expire.
