NFL, NFLPA Set To Negotiate Saturday, Next Week

Over the past two days, the two most important men to the NFL over the next month have taken center stage in Dallas. NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith spoke on Thursday, and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell followed him up on Friday, as both sides discussed the impending labor issues and the need to get a new Collective Bargaining Agreement in place.

Most of you are aware of the key issues, and we'll re-hash them plenty as the March 4 deadline approaches, I'm sure. There is a bit of news to share here, though: the NFL and NFLPA will meet in an undisclosed location tomorrow (Saturday) to begin negotiations anew; the two sides have not had a meeting since November.

What's more, the two sides have also scheduled two further meetings for next week, once Super Bowl XLV has been played. If little to no progress is made by the end of next week, then an unprecedented level of worry will set in regarding a possible 2011 NFL lockout.
