NFL Lockout Still On As Players Don't Plan To Meet Until Monday

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the players do not have any plans to vote on a new CBA today or this weekend and will not meet about the issue until Monday.

NFLPA reps sent out an email to players saying,“We will meet again Monday to discuss our options and the direction we want to go.”

Presumably, that means we will have to wait until at least then to find out whether the players will ratify this thing or not. The prevailing narrative from the players are that they “won’t be rushed!” So whether this is about proving a point to the owners or they really need three more days is unclear.

Either way, the NFL basically gave them until Tuesday to ratify the deal. So if they met and held a vote on Monday, presumably everything could proceed as planned with the new league year starting on Wednesday and follow the tentative schedule we posted yesterday.
