NFL deadline extended by a day

After meeting for several hours at the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service offices yesterday, the sides agreed to extend the deadline for reaching a collective bargaining agreement until midnight tonight.

According to league sources, this does indicate that they are any closer to a new CBA. But the extension buys time to talk about a longer extension. And that's exactly what today's talks are expected to yield: an extension of the talks from three days to two weeks.
