NFL Talks Hit Snag

Thursday, July 21, 2011 - 8:54am

Players fail to vote on new labor agreement; talks continue.

Representatives from the 32 NFL teams left meetings Wednesday without voting on a new collective bargaining agreement.

The players' executive committee and team reps did discuss remaining issues, but stressed they won't rush to a decision.

If final legal hurdles are worked out and if a new deal is on paper, the players could vote on a new agreement as early as this morning.

NFL owners are meeting today in Atlanta and they too could vote on the new collective bargaining agreement.

If 24 of the 32 owners vote "yes" locks would come off NFL facilities, some training camps could open as early as this weekend and the country's most popular sport would be open for business once more.

The new collective bargaining agreement is reported to be a 10-year-deal.
