The NFL and NFLPA will meet Wednesday morning in New York in their latest session toward getting a new collective bargaining agreement, according to source with knowledge of the situation.
The sides remain far apart on most major issues, and few league insiders are expecting significant progress until 2011, after the upcoming season. The thrust of Wednesday's meeting is expected to focus on the "enhanced season," with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and the owners heavily in favor of truncating the preseason by two games and adding two regular-season games.
It's a notion some players and NFLPA officials have taken issue with and one that likely would require changes to teams' roster size, as well as general player compensation, obviously. The league seems committed to having this as part of any labor agreement moving forward.
