NFL, Players Union Discussing CBA Extension

Times are rough in the NFL without a doubt. Fortunately, there’s a small glimmer of hope.


The lockout is due to officially start in about nine hours. However, according to, the NFL brass and the players’ association are discussing an extension of the negotiating deadline for a week or two. This proposed extension would most likely delay the NFLPA’s plans of decertifying this afternoon.


All signs are still pointing to a lockout that may drag well past the Summer solstice, but delaying the inevitable never hurt, right?
