NFL Lockout Talks Will Continue On Tuesday

Talks between the owners and players to end the NFL lockout will conclude early on Friday according to NFL Network's Albert Breer. The two sides met for over 15 hours on Thursday and continue to meet on Friday morning. Friday's talks are not expected to be an all-day affair.

Per Breer, the talks will resume on Tuesday, July 5. The first two days of talks will include NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, and their respective legal teams. Thursday and Friday's talks will then include other owners and players.

So where do we stand on the NFL lockout right now? It's hard to tell as some noted on Thursday that talks stalled due to -- what else -- disagreements on the revenue split.

That said, the reliable Mark Maske of the Washington Post reports that the optimism is returning.

Things appear back on course after Thursday afternoon's near breakdown of talks. A deal by the end of next week again seems possible.

Good news? I hope so. The deadline to come to an agreement and still get in free agency and training camp is coming soon. Some feel that deadline is July 15 though no one has gone on record to say so.
