NFL Lockout News: Two Sides Will Meet With Mediator Again On Tuesday

The collective bargaining agreement between the NFL players union and the league's owners expires on March 3, and if there isn't a new agreement in place by the beginning of the season, the league may be headed for a lockout.

The two sides have been negotiating for the last few weeks, but they haven't been able to make much progress on a new agreement. But according to Mark Maske of the Washington Post, talks will resume on Tuesday.

The NFL's labor negotiations are scheduled to resume Tuesday in Washington.

Negotiators for the league and the players' union are scheduled to meet beginning at 1 p.m. in the downtown D.C. offices of the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. The bargaining session is to take place under the supervision of federal mediator George H. Cohen.

The mediator can't make any official decisions, he exists mostly to relay what each side is really trying to get at to the other. The CBA is expected to expire on Thursday without a new agreement, but that doesn't mean that a new one can't be agreed upon before the league is forced to cancel any games.

We'll be updating this stream with all the latest news about a potential lockout as we head towards NFL armageddon.
