NFL Lockout Update: Owners Made 'Significant Concessions' Thursday

There's been a lot of back and forth the last couple days regarding the NFL Lockout and how close the owners and players are to a resolution. Thursday's discussions have folks on the optimistic outlook again as the owners reportedly make some "significant concessions."

Owners did make significant concessions in the rookie wage issue, hoping to bring talks closer to a resolution. Management sources indicated that the move saved what could have been two or three days of talks, clearing the way for lawyers to draft language that still could take a significant amount of time.

It appears that both sides are indeed on schulede for the possible resolution next week. Both sides will have a mediation session in Minneapolis, which is expected to be place a handshake could occur and a vote could be scheduled. Whether or not that's July 17, July 19 or July 21 remains to be seen.

Stay tuned for more NFL lockout news as the season continues to get closer and closer.
