Browns’ JC Tretter elected as new NFLPA president

Cleveland Browns offensive lineman JC Tretter has been elected as the new president of the NFL Players Association, the union announced Tuesday.

Tretter was elected by the NFLPA’s 32-member board of player representatives.

Tretter was running for the post against New York Giants defensive back Michael Thomas and Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Sam Acho.

Soon-to-be Carolina Panthers offensive tackle Russell Okung dropped out of the race Tuesday morning, a source told ESPN.

Tretter hasn’t made public which way he is voting for the proposed CBA. Acho was a yes vote and Thomas was a no vote.

Tretter replaces outgoing president Eric Winston.
