The nearly four-hour meeting between NFL owners and player representatives over a potential new collective bargaining agreement has concluded.
NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy told reporters Tuesday night: “As you can tell, the meeting just concluded, and out of respect for the process, we’re not going to comment further at this time.”
The NFL Players Association is planning a meeting Tuesday night to discuss what went on in meeting with owners, a source told ESPN’s Dan Graziano. Union reps from all 32 teams are at a hotel outside of Indianapolis and prepared to vote if need be, but it’s unclear at this time whether they will vote tonight.
Among the player reps seen attending the meeting with owners were the 49ers’ Richard Sherman and the Chargers’ Russell Okung.
NFL owners voted last week to approve the current CBA proposal, which is the result of 10 months of negotiating between players and owners. But enough players remain opposed to the idea of expanding the regular season from 16 to 17 games, so they delayed their own scheduled Friday vote until after they had a chance to meet with the owners face-to-face.
