Owners, NFLPA members meet again in New York
NEW YORK — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA chief DeMaurice Smith have arrived to start a second straight day of negotiations at a law firm in Manhattan.
Members of the NFL Players' Association executive board and owners are meeting Friday in hopes of resolving a lockout that began in March.
Entering the building were several executive board members, including President Kevin Mawae and NFL owners. The owners included John Mara of the New York Giants and Jerry Jones of the Dallas Cowboys.
On Thursday, negotiations stretched on for more than 12 hours, deep into the evening.
Some training camps are set to open in less than three weeks and the first exhibition game, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame inductions, is Aug. 7 in Canton, Ohio.
