With an apparent last minute power play in the works, we still have some important labor talks left to go.
So what’s the schedule for the upcoming days?
On Sunday, lawyers for both sides are communicating but not meeting face-to-face. The lawyers will be back at the table together Monday in New York, according to Albert Breer of NFL.com.
Meanwhile, the NFLPA* executive committee will get together in Washington D.C. on Monday afternoon to go over the latest CBA details. Both the NFLPA* and the NFL will then wait for the direction of federal mediator Arthur Boylan on where to go next.
Both sides will meet with Boylan on Tuesday, but the location is uncertain. It’s possible the league and players won’t meet face to face Monday.
“The parties will be in touch with Judge Boylan to give him a report on developments in advance of next Tuesday’s session and will consult with him on how to make the best use of the time before our league meeting on Thursday,” NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told Breer.
The owners hope to vote and ratify an agreement on Thursday the 21st when they meet in Atlanta.
