NFL, Players Extend Negotiations 24 Hours

The current NFL CBA was set to expire today at 11:59pm effectively ending the NFL as we know it and plunging the league into a lockout with no visible sign of resolution. However, after a full day of negotiations the players unions and the owners came to the decision to extend the current CBA 24 hours so that talks may continue for another day.

Many believe that this short extension may be a precursor to a lengthier, perhaps 7 day, extension of the CBA and negotiations towards a new deal. There is still a feeling amongst those in the know that the owners and players are still miles apart but the extension is a positive sign, albeit a small one.
