news: Back at it: NFL owners, players come together for crucial talks

NEW YORK — NFL owners and players wrapped up over 12 hours of negotiations at a Manhattan law firm Thursday, part of a critical set of labor talks, with the possibility of cancelled preseason games becoming more real by the day.

Talks are expected to resume at 9 a.m. ET Friday.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith each arrived Thursday morning with five representatives of their constituency, as has been the case at many of these meetings.

Goodell was accompanied by New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, New York Giants owner John Mara, Pittsburgh Steelers president Art Rooney II and Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt, while Smith brought NFLPA president Kevin Mawae, former special-teams ace Sean Morey, Steelers quarterback Charlie Batch, Indianapolis Colts center Jeff Saturday and Baltimore Ravens cornerback Domonique Foxworth. U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan also re-joined the talks, but he has a vacation scheduled to begin Saturday.
