Owners, union representatives wrap up four-hour meeting

The NFL and NFLPA will meet today to discuss the latest CBA proposal in hopes of closing the gap and completing the deal.

NFL owners and representatives from the NFL Players Association concluded a lengthy meeting in Indianapolis this evening.

The meeting began at 5 p.m. ET and wrapped up just before 9. The owners are hoping to get the players to sign off on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. It’s unclear whether the owners were willing to negotiate any of the terms they’re proposing or simply trying to persuade the players that the deal is a good one.

“Out of respect for the process, we will have no further comment at this time,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told reporters outside the meeting.

A vote is likely coming this week on whether the NFLPA’s board of player representatives agree to the proposed CBA. If the player representatives approve, it would then go to a vote of all 1,900 members of the players’ union.
