The NFL and the NFLPA* said this afternoon that their talks will continue. And that’s all they said.
In a joint statement released Wednesday, both sides confirmed that negotiations are ongoing, but they also said they will offer no comments about the substance of the negotiations.
“Discussions between NFL owners and players under the auspices of Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan took place again this week and will continue,” the statement said. “At the request of Judge Boylan, both sides have agreed to maintain the confidentiality of the substance of the talks.”
The NFL also confirmed that the people in attendance from their side were Roger Goodell, Jerry Richardson, Clark Hunt, Robert Kraft, John Mara and Dean Spanos. The NFLPA* confirmed that the people in attendance from their side were Kevin Mawae, Jeff Saturday, Tony Richardson, Domonique Foxworth, Brian Waters and DeMaurice Smith.
