Senator introduces compromise athlete compensation bill

This is in addition to five other bills that are floating around Congress. The bill by Sen. Jerry Moran (R-Kansas) would allow college athletes to sign endorsement deals with some restrictions on what types of deals they could enter. It would also require the largest college athletic programs to provide more medical insurance coverage for current and former athletes and would allow a one-time free transfer in all sports as long as it’s not during or within 60 days of the start of that season, and players could enter the professional draft without losing eligibility. But it also defines college athletes as students, not employees. A government nonprofit corporation, not the NCAA, would create and enforce rules related to this law.
