NFL Lockout: Owners, Players Meeting On Tuesday

The (potentially) good news continues to roll in regarding the NFL lockout. ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports a contingent of owners and players will meet in the Washington D.C. area on Tuesday. Per Mort, both sides are in "deal-making mode."

Again, we're cautious to get our hopes up too much because we've been optimistic before only to see that dashed with pessimism but we've been seeing lots of positive reports lately. Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that it's "increasingly realistic" that a deal gets done by the end of the month.

That doesn't mean a deal will get done but it does mean that the two sides are making enough progress to make some think that a new deal is possible. Considering just a few weeks ago we were wondering if any games would be missed as a result of the lockout, I'll take all the positive news I can get.

The owners are meeting on June 21 and they've been told to prepare to stay overnight which suggests there's lots of talking to be done. And if the two sides are talking that means we are presumably closer to a deal. 

NFL Network's Albert Breer reports the talks will be of the same type that we've seen between the two sides over the last few weeks.
