Patriots owner Robert Kraft sounded an optimistic note on Thursday afternoon regarding recent talks between the players and owners, but added that there’s still ‘a lot left to solve’ when it comes to ending the lockout.
‘We’re talking about how we improve the game and how we solve our problems and the only issue is how do we get football back, no other agendas,’ he told reporters. ‘I think thats a very positive thing, but we still have a lot of hard work to do. A lot left to solve. At least we’re there talking to one another.
‘The good news for me is both sides care about ‘ having the union and the players involved there and the owners and the commissioner, we all care about the health of this game long term and thats our sole focus, so building on that is gratifying.’
The lockout, which will reach its’ 90th day on Friday, is the longest work stoppage in NFL history.
