NFL and NFLPA Cancel Thursday’s Bargaining Session

Jason La Canfora of NFL Network reports a second day of negotiations in Washington between the NFL and NFL Players Association has been canceled, according to a source with knowledge of the situation.

The sides, working to reach agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement by March 3, when the current CBA expires, canceled Thursday’s planned talks after an extended session Wednesday.

The sides met Saturday in Dallas, and future talks are planned. Such setbacks are not out of the norm, but hopes of building momentum through multiple sessions this week will not be met.

Neither side would comment on what was discussed or how fruitful the talks were in Wednesday’s session.
