Inching Closer to Football: NFL-NFLPA Issue Statement

Jul 15, 2011, 5:17 PM EDT

The discussions this week have been constructive and progress has been made on a wide range of issues. Our legal and financial teams will continue to work through the weekend. We will continue to respect the confidentiality orders of Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan and will therefore refrain from commenting on specific issues or aspects of the negotiations. We will provide additional information as developments in this process continue.

Twitter was buzzing on Friday with word that the end of the NFL lockout could come very soon, even as early as today. That’s not looking likely, but things have progressed nicely and the NFL and NFLPA have issued a joint statement:

The discussions this week have been constructive and progress has
been made on a wide range of issues. Our legal and financial teams will
continue to work through the weekend. We will continue to respect the
confidentiality orders of Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan and will
therefore refrain from commenting on specific issues or aspects of the
negotiations. We will provide additional information as developments in
this process continue.

Close.
