More NFL Owners Attending Mediation On Tuesday; DeMaurice Smith Will Not

Several more NFL owners will be attending Tuesday's mediation session in Minneapolis after just four showed up last week. Joining the Chiefs' Clark Hunt, Patriots' Robert Kraft, Panthers' Jerry Richardson and Steelers' Art Rooney will be the Cowboys' Jerry Jones, Broncos' Pat Bowlen and Packers president Mark Murphy. 

One large name for the players will be missing on Tuesday -- DeMaurice Smith. The former union head has a family emergency and won't be able to attend the mediation session. Let's hope his absence won't slow down any progress the two sides are (or could be) making. 

The two sides will resume mediation on Tuesday after a weekend break. They were together for approximately 10 hours on Thursday and then 3-4 hours on Friday. They left for the weekend with some homework from Chief Magistrate Arthur Boylan so let's hope they both got it done and they're ready to make some progress.
