DeMaurice Smith was on Mike and Mike this morning. Talked about the ongoing negotiations between NFLPA and the league. Highlights: Talks continue. Last offer from owners was about a month ago, included an 18 game season, and a (I think he said) 17% rollback of the salary cap. (he called it 70's era salary). NFLPA offered a cap on rookie salaries by removing 200m from rookie pool if 100m went to pre 1993 player pensions, and 100m went to veterans. Owners turned down the proposal.
