NFLPA, NFL Meeting Wednesday To Discuss CBA

A couple of weeks ago in our interview with NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith, he told us that the union would be meeting with the league at some point in June.

Liz Mullen of the Sports Business Journal (via PFT) reports that meeting will take place Wednesday.

This is another round of negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Given recent events, it might make for an awkward negotiating session. The NFLPA recently filed a complaint against the NFL's TV deals essentially calling them "lockout insurance". That is being heard by the Special Master. The Louisiana Legislature has encouraged both sides to get a deal done and prominent agents have spoken out calling this the worst NFL offseason in years.

This is also the first time the NFLPA will negotiate with who they've dubbed the "lockout lawyer".
