After a week without communication, the NFL and NFLPA have agreed to do nothing but talk for a week.
A league source (but not a league office source) tells PFT that the league and union have agreed to seven straight days of negotiations. This development was disclosed in a conference call with agents. The seven straight days will kick off Friday.
Thursday included two tiny steps forward for everyone hoping for a resolution by early March. The two sides agreed to federal mediation and now have agreed to the kind of sustained discussions necessary to get a deal done.
It’s a start.
