NFL Lockout News: CBA Expiration Pushed Back A Day While Sides Continue Negotiating

Finally some positive news on the NFL Lockout front. A new deal may still be weeks or even months away, but it’s still encouraging news that the NFL and the Players Association have agreed to extend the CBA for another 24 hours while the two sides continue negotiating.

There had been speculation that the union would decertify on Thursday ahead of being locked out at midnight Friday morning. But reportedly the NFLPA agreed to the owner’s proposed extension to remain at the table for another day. Eagles fans shouldn’t get their hopes up just yet, as it could still very well be weeks or even months before an agreement is reached. But if nothing else, this news suggests that both parties are indeed serious about coming to terms on a new deal sooner rather than later.

For more lockout news as it becomes available, stay tuned here, at Bleeding Green Nation, and around the SB Nation network.
