There seems to be growing optimism among league insiders that a new CBA could be finalized sometime before or during the month of March.
"We plan to increase the number, length and intensity of bargaining sessions so that we can reach agreement before the March 4 expiration of the current CBA," the NFL and NFLPA said in a statement after an extensive Saturday meeting. ESPN's John Clayton, PFT's Mike Florio, and Comcast SportsNet New England's Tom Curran are all optimistic about a deal getting done sooner rather than later. The NFL and NFLPA have agreed on March 4 as the deadline to broker a new CBA.
