The NFL Reaches Tentative Labor Settlement (WaPo)
NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue and Players Association chief Gene Upshaw have reached a tentative agreement on a labor settlement that will be presented to the sport’s team owners for approval during a meeting scheduled to begin Tuesday afternoon in Dallas, a source familiar with the proceedings said this morning. League spokesman Greg Aiello denied this morning that there is a deal between Tagliabue and Upshaw. But one owner and a front office executive said today that their teams had been told a deal between the two is completed.
Negotiators for the two sides will resume talks today to put the details of the agreement between Tagliabue and Upshaw into writing, a source said.
The deal would have to be approved by at least 24 of the 32 NFL teams to go into effect. Details of the proposed settlement were not immediately available.
