NFL players hold phone updates on lockout

Buffalo safety George Wilson likes what he sees and hears about the players’ recent discussions with the owners to end the lockout. The Bills’ player representative also cautions against getting swept away by expectations of an imminent settlement.

“We’re definitely optimistic we’re moving in the right direction,” Wilson told The Associated Press on Saturday. “Right now we feel like we’re having meaningful discussions. … We feel we have the right people in the room, discussing the right things and both sides want to get a deal done. But even though we’re moving in the right direction, we’re not there yet.”

Wilson said conference calls held in the last two days mark the first time in a while players have been briefed on a lockout that is in its fourth month.

“That’s because there haven’t been any developments the last little while,” he said.
