Darren Rovell of CNBC summed up the current state of NFL talks well:
“No reporter has any clue about what is happening in the labor negotiations now,” Rovell wrote. “That’s a good sign.”
This much we know. NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith went ahead with his plan to update players around 2 p.m. ET. ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that ownership is hopeful that negotiations will continue after that talk.
Basically, the players have to decide whether to proceed with decertification or extend the clock once again and try to keep the momentum from today’s talks moving forward.
