NFL owners to meet Thursday and discuss labor negotiations for new CBA

The league has proposed a 17-game regular season as part of a new contract.

NEW YORK — NFL owners will meet Thursday in Manhattan to discuss ongoing negotiations with the players' association about a new collective bargaining agreement.

Recent talks have brought both sides closer to a potential agreement a year before the current 10-year deal expires. 

Having the 32 team owners together for a previously unscheduled forum _ the next scheduled owners meeting is not until the end of March in Florida _ appears to be a sign of substantial progress. The league has proposed a 17-game regular season as part of a new contract.
