NFL, NFLPA to meet July 17-19 to negotiate new CBA

The NFL and NFLPA continue to try to hammer out a new collective bargaining agreement ahead of the 2019 season.

Sides will reconvene July 17-19 to work toward a new CBA, NFL Network's Mike Garafolo reported.

ESPN first reported the news.

The three-day summit will be the first time sides have negotiated for three consecutive days in an effort to hammer out the more difficult issues. Sides have met thrice previously this offseason.

NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported in May that talks have been described as "cordial" and "amicable" by multiple sources at the early stages. We'll see if things get more contentious during the July meetings.

The current CBA, signed in 2011, is set to expire after the 2020 campaign. The sides are hoping to get a jump start on many issues before that deadline gets close.
