NFL Lockout: NFLPA, Owners Agree To Extend Negotiations By One Week

NFL labor talks took an interesting turn earlier today when the NFLPA and the league’s owners agreed to set a new deadline for negotiations on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. Adam Schefter reports the new deadline is next Friday, March 11, at 5 PM.

As SB Nation’s own Joel Thorman explains, “this extension is the best possible news we could get,” as it could signal a new CBA is on its way. Indeed, there’s plenty of stumbling blocks on the way to securing an agreement, but the “momentum,” as Thorman called it, has to encourage NFL fans hoping this season won’t be locked out.
