NFLPA* Agrees To Meet To Discuss Options Further

New, comments

That's the good news.

The bad news is that, according to ESPN, they won't be doing so until Monday.

ESPN's Adam Schefter got his hands on a copy of the letter that the NFLPA* sent to the players concerning the matter. It reads as follows:

"Guys, To keep you abreast of the latest developments, we are reviewing the latest proposal for a settlement. Because of the passing of Myra Kraft in Boston, the NFLPA will not be making any public statements in honor of the Kraft family. Our recommendation is for everyone to stay put and keep doing what you are doing where you are doing it. We will meet again on Monday to discuss our options and the direction we want to go. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to contact us. Thanks for your patience. Your Player Reps."

Hard to get too bent out of shape at either side for this, given the circumstances.

So, it doesn't look like we should expect too much movement during the weekend on the lockout front. We don't know that for sure or anything, mind you, but that's what it looks like as of now.
