RiggoReincarnated Posted February 19, 2006 Share Posted February 19, 2006 http://www.kffl.com/team/77/nfl Mark Maske, of the Washington Post, reports NFL Players Association chief Gene Upshaw is scheduled to meet with the players agents as a group next week in Indianapolis at the NFL Combine. The meeting will come as the agents prepare to begin negotiating contracts for players at a time of great uncertainty, with the union and the league's team owners still significantly apart in their negotiations on an extension of the sport's collective bargaining agreement. The union regards Feb. 24 as the deadline for a labor deal. Union officials say if that deadline passes without a deal, the free-agent market will open as scheduled March 3. Upshaw has said if there's no deal by the time the union's executive board meets March 9, he'll recommend to the players then that they put in motion the process to decertify the union as a tactic to prevent a future lockout by the owners.
