The Canadian Football League and Players’ Association haveĀ averted a possible strike with a tentative deal on a new collective bargaining agreement.

The deal, which still needs to be ratified by both sides, was reached Saturday.

The agreement reportedly calls for a $5-million salary cap.

The union had originally sought a cap of $6.24-million but later reduced the amount to $5.2-million.

Monday’s exhibition game between the Toronto Argonauts and Winnipeg Blue Bombers will go ahead and the regular season will open as scheduled on June 26.

The Ticats play their first pre-season game at McMaster June 14 against the Montreal Alouettes.
