Secret Meeting Between Goodell, Owners and NFLPA May Signal the Start of a Deal

It will be looked at as a sign of progress, as ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter is reporting today that the NFL Lockout could have see it’s biggest movement in months this past week.

Schefter is reporting that NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell along with a couple of owners (Jerry Jones of the Cowboys among them) had a secret meeting with the NFLPA to try and start bridging the gap of what needs to get settled for this lockout to end.

The meeting took place at a hotel in Chicago, and it is not known exactly how long the metting went for. The lockout needs to hurry up and get settled or the league is going to have to start looking at the possibility of cancelling preseason games and possilby training camp.

“They have made some progress,” Schefter said. “It’s not like a deal is immanent, it’s not that it will happen this point this week, but what they are doing is laying a foundation to try and get a deal done at some point this month, by the end of the month, before the judges would weigh in.”

The fact that the two sides are meeting is a HUGE step, and one that is in the right direction.
