NFL.com news: Sides make progress on revenue split as talks wrap for week

MINNEAPOLIS — A day after NFL owners and players negotiated for nearly 16 hours, the two sides opted for a much briefer gathering Friday, with plans to reconvene next week.

Sources told NFL Network that players and owners made major strides on the revenue split Thursday night and Friday morning, to the point where if the rest can be worked out, they could be close to reaching a financial model.

Both parties held conference calls Friday morning with their constituencies. The sessions will resume with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and their staffs meeting Tuesday and Wednesday in New York. Players and owners will then join the meetings Thursday and Friday.

“We’ll continue to meet next week, and the goal is to get a deal done,” Smith said as he exited Friday.

The two sides will build off an intriguing week of talks, which seemed to be in peril at one point Thursday before the parties negotiated for nearly nine more hours.
