NFL owners to meet Thursday and discuss labor negotiations

KELOLAND Sports Basketball Classic

NEW YORK (AP) – NFL owners will meet Thursday in Manhattan to discuss ongoing negotiations with the players’ association about a new collective bargaining agreement.

Recent talks have brought both sides closer to a potential agreement a year before the current 10-year deal expires. Having the 32 team owners together for a previously unscheduled forum — the next scheduled owners meeting is not until the end of March in Florida — appears to be a sign of substantial progress.

The league has proposed a 17-game regular season as part of a new contract.
