WASHINGTON — The NFL and NFLPA are ‘down to the details’ in finalizing a 10-year agreement to end the four-month-old lockout.

The negotiators started work early Sunday morning after a day of very productive negotiations on Saturday. After some of last week’s turbulence, the NFLPA put its 13-man executive committee and 32 player reps on standby for Monday, depending on the progress made over the weekend. Late Saturday night, after the day’s progress in talks, the trade association put in place plans for the executive committee to travel to Washington, D.C. and meet on Monday.

NFLPA general counsel Richard Berthelsen, associate general counsel Tom DePaso and director of salary cap and agent administration Mark Levin were called in to the trade association’s office on Sunday morning to help with details and to be ready to review the final document when it arrives.

During Monday’s meeting, the executive committee members will look over the potential deal. Assuming the committee recommends approval of the deal, it would be passed on to the 32 player reps for a vote, likely done by conference call. An affirmative vote there would go to the 10 named plaintiffs in Brady v. the NFL for approval.
