NFL owners and the NFL Players Association have agreed to a seven-day extension of the Collective Bargaining Agreement, which would run until next Friday, NFL.com is reporting.
The two sides agreed to a 24-hour extension Thursday evening. The current CBA was to expire at 11:59 p.m. Thursday.
According to the NFL Network, the sides will take the weekend off and resume negotiations in Washington Monday. But the network is reporting that the seven days will count the weekend, which means there will be five more days of negotiations during the extension.
The extension must still be approved and the mediator has yet to make a formal announcement.
