With the NFL set to go to court April 6, a few optimists have suggested that the union and owners could spend the next few weeks continuing negotiations. But some players are saying don’t count on it.

Adam Schefter of ESPN tweeted Monday night, “One NFLPA source said there's ‘no chance’ there will be negotiations, or even possibly a deal, before April 6 lockout hearing is resolved.”

Given the deal the players left on the table Friday before decertifying – a deal that reportedly included increased health benefits, a 16-game regular season and hundreds of millions of dollars in revenue consideration – maybe the news from Schefter’s source should come as no surprise.

Then again, this also contradicts what Cardinals kicker Jay Feely told Pro Football Talk earlier in the day on Monday. Feely, who has been negotiating already, “I don’t know the exact legal ramifications for how and when we would have to negotiate and continue to negotiate. We’re always willing to negotiate so, we have no desire to be stagnant in a litigation system and our desire is to play football.”

Who knows who is speaking the truth (or if the players themselves have even made a decision about further negotiations).

Practical submit, this may be. It truly is routinely decent to arrive across a submit and that is a must have.

If the owners did indeed offer increase health and revenue along with staying with a 16 game season then that just reinforces my disdain for the players. I dont really support either group but I have not liked the players handling from the beginning, especially now they are trying to mess with the draft. The draft is my Oscars, they mess with that, I will never forgive those losers!

And for those bashing the owners remember one thing, they are PRIVATE businesses (except GB) and have NO obligation to show any financial data to the players, the fact they shared any last week was a big step for them. People who run private business do so to make MONEY, players and fans need to remember that.

why would the players want to sit down and negotiate with "slave owners" and "heredity owners"--right resident morons ryan (toast) clark and Adrian (fumbles) Peterson. It is also fitting that the lead palintiff in this mess is none other than Marcia Brady--wonder if he will show up in court with his pony tail and walking boot
