With the owners and players set to negotiate again today in Boston, it sounds like their swing to a new CBA in the near future continues on a good track.
According to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, talks on Wednesday were “very fruitful,” and they will continue until a deal is reached.
"We are headed in the right direction," the source told Paolantonio. "There is a desire on both sides to reach an agreement sooner rather than later."
That’s not to say any of this is surprising. As CBSSports.com’s Mike Freeman recently told us, it would take a real knucklehead to mess up these negotiations.
On Wednesday, commissioner Roger Goodell apparently shared with NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith some of the feedback he heard from the owners in their meeting earlier this week in Chicago.
This afternoon, the NFLPA will update the players on the latest news.
