NFL Lockout 2011: CBA Negotiations Between NFL Owners, NFLPA Will Continue

There is a new deadline between the NFL and NFLPA to come to an agreement on a new collective bargaining agreement. According to multiple sources, the NFL and NFLPA have agreed to a 7-day extension to the current CBA, allowing both sides to continue mediation in hopes of coming to a new agreement before the end of the month.

The new deadline – 5:00PM on Friday, March 11 – comes when there seems to be at least some optimism that a deal can be reached sooner rather than later. Both sides are expected to take the weekend to regroup before mediation begins again on Monday morning.
