In the negotiations for a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, the NFL players and owners have agreed to a 24-hour extension of the deadline, which was originally set for Thursday at midnight. The news, which was first reported by the NFL Network, means that both sides will likely continue talking throughout the day on Friday at the offices of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Services in Washington, D.C. in hopes of avoiding the first work stoppage in the NFL since 1987.
