In light of a hectic Thursday that included NFL owners voting to approve the new collective bargaining agreement, and the players subsequently declining to, NFLPA President Kevin Mawae released a statement Friday morning.
"Player leadership is discussing the most recent written proposal with the NFL, which includes a settlement agreement, deal terms and the right process for addressing recertification. There will not be any further NFLPA statements today out of respect for the Kraft family while they mourn the loss of Myra Kraft."
Myra Kraft, the wife of New England Patriots owner Bob Kraft, passed away Wednesday and the funeral was Friday morning.
Although it appears that the NFLPA will not vote on the proposed CBA today, there is still a sense that a deal will get done soon.
