The first serious negotiating session between the NFL and NFLPA since November is in the books. It took two hours, and hopefully not much of that time was used to craft the following jointly released statement.
“The NFL and NFL Players Association met for two hours today in a continuing effort to narrow the differences and reach a fair agreement that will benefit the players, teams and fans. We plan to increase the number, length and intensity of bargaining sessions so that we can reach agreement before the March 4 expiration of the current CBA.”
NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said Saturday that at least two sessions are scheduled for next week at an undisclosed location.
