NFL, NFLPA Meet To Discuss 18-Game Season

The NFL and NFLPA met on Tuesday to discuss, among a variety of topics, the 18-game NFL season that has been proposed.

On Monday, Colts executive Bill Polian called the 18-game NFL season a done deal and that the debate was over.

The NFL and the NFLPA have issued a joint statement on that after meeting today.

"Today's bargaining session focused on several matters, including the proposed 18-2 season format, a rookie wage scale, and improvements for retired players. Both sides look forward to continuing these discussions and reaching a new collective bargaining agreement."

The NFLPA has been hesitant to agree to an 18-game season citing injury and monetary concerns. The owners seem intent on adding to the schedule.
