Hall of Fame defensive end Carl Eller and lawyers for retired NFL

players are meeting with representatives of owners and current

players at a New York law firm for talks aimed at ending the

lockout.

The court-appointed mediator, U.S. Magistrate Judge Arthur Boylan,

is also at Tuesday’s session, as the sides attempt to close a deal

to resolve the NFL’s first work stoppage since 1987.

Owners are set to be in Atlanta on Thursday, when they could ratify

a new agreement – if there is one in place. Executives from all 32

teams then would be briefed there Thursday and Friday on how the

terms would affect league business.

Any tentative agreement also must be approved by players, including

Tom Brady and other plaintiffs in a pending antitrust suit against

the NFL. Players are meeting in Washington.
