NFL Lockout: Owners Meetings Include Football Executives

Here's an interesting tidbit on the NFL owners meetings going on in Chicago on Tuesday -- football executives are included in the sessions. The two sides are reportedly making progress on ending the NFL lockout so I wonder if the presence of some of the league's GMs is a good sign.

If the football people are in the house, then it's possible they're discussing how to conduct free agency if/when the league year begins. I'd say this could be considered a good sign, if that's indeed what they're discussing.

The owners and players will figure out the details of the CBA but they'll likely need the input from GMs in order to get football operations up and running again. 

Another interesting tidbit on the meetings is that they're expected to last just one day. Last week, ESPN's Adam Schefter reported that the owners were told to prepare to stay another day but it doesn't appear that'll be the case

Stay tuned for more NFL lockout news
