The negotiations regarding the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement are likely to go through many phases before we arrive at an uncapped year.
For now, there isn’t a lot of talking going on between the NFL and the NFLPA. And that has Commissioner Roger Goodell pessimistic about a possible agreement.
In comments to reporters Thursday, as relayed by Tom Curran, Goodell said, there was “A strong reality is there will be an uncapped year because of the progress to date. There’s a lot to do. And thus far, the progress is minimal.”
Goodell, of course, says the owners want no part of a work stoppage.
“The idea that the owners would be looking for a lockout is foolish,” he said.
