Notwithstanding an e-mail from NFLPA* player representatives to the rank-and-file indicating that a meeting (and thus a vote) won’t happen until Monday, there remains a chance that a vote will come sooner.
Per a source with direct knowledge of the dynamics, a vote will happen when the deal points and the language of the settlement are completed.
That means the lawyers and the principals need to get to work, while NFLPA* player leadership digests the proposal passed by the owners.
There’s a benefit, however, to putting the word out that nothing will happen until Monday. The strategy could reduce the intense media scrutiny, allowing the players to focus on the task at hand.
So maybe the vote comes Monday. Maybe it comes sooner. For those of us who have had enough of this mess, it can’t come soon enough.
UPDATE: As Jason LaCanfora of NFL Network tells it, the e-mail from NFLPA* player representatives to the rank-and-file was never sent. Multiple reports have confirmed that work will continue and that a vote will happen when the deal is ready.
