NFL, Union Agree To 24-Hour Deadline Extension

WASHINGTON (AP) — A member of the players’ negotiating team says the union and the NFL have agreed to a 24-hour extension in labor talks.

Just hours before the end of the NFL’s collective bargaining agreement, due to expire at midnight on Thursday, NFLPA executive committee member Jeff Saturday said the two sides opted to continue discussions aimed at maintaining the labor peace that the NFL has enjoyed since 1987.

The league and players’ union were meeting for a 10th day with mediator George Cohen.
