In a recent sit down interview with ESPN’s George Hill, NFLPA executive committee members Mike Vrabel, Drew Brees, Domonique Foxworth, Brian Dawkins and Jeff Saturday told their side of several of the stories that have come to define the acrimonious labor negotiations.

One of the things Vrabel said was that the players would love to get back to the negotiating table . . . as long as it’s Jerry Jones, Bob Kraft, Jerry Richardson and other owners seated at that table, not owners and their cadre of lawyers and negotiators. Vrabel specifically said no Jeff Pash.

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello responded: “The NFL’s negotiating team — accompanied by the three owners (Vrabel) mentioned, Jerry Jones, Jerry Richardson and Robert Kraft — is prepared to meet immediately. Just tell us when and where.”

Of course, this was hardly a response at all, as the NFL’s negotiating team includes Roger Goodell and Pash.

In the end, it’s more verbal posturing by two sides that everyone is starting to root against.

So, does that mean the players are gonna show up without THEIR "union" reps (Smith, etc) and lawyers? If it's just owners and players, I think a deal gets done.
