The NFL owners and players agreed to a 24 hour extension of the current collective bargaining agreement on Thursday, in order to allow negotiations to continue.
Federal mediator George Cohen broke the news saying, “The parties have agreed to a one-day extension.”
NFL negotiator Jeff Pash said they had “good discussions and exchanges,” Thursday. He lightly said, “We’re going to be back here Friday.”
While it remains doubtful that the two sides can come to an agreement so quickly, after having been on opposite ends of the universe on this issue for so long, the extension still comes as a show of good-faith.
According to one report, a source with knowledge of the discussions said that while the two remain divided with regard to revenue sharing, they have agreed on a few other topics.
So get ready for D-Day part two on Friday.
