Freeman: CBA Negotiaions Plodding Along

Mike Freeman of CBS Sports reports that the CBA negotiations between the NFL and the NFLPA* are plodding right along, and that's a good thing.

PROGRESS: I'm told it continues at a steady pace in the collective bargaining agreement negotiations between representatives of the players and owners. It was the kind of steady plodding that's been happening for weeks. A person familiar with the talks -- which happened in Boston on Wednesday-- explained both sides continue to negotiate and every day that happens we're a day closer to football. The talks are expected to continue on Thursday.

A big issue remains "true ups." Get used to that phrase. You're going to hear it a lot. True ups basically are about projected revenue. They continue to also debate rookie contracts. Both sides agree they need to be controlled.

It's nice to see that the NFLPA* is on board with trying to get rookie contracts in control. It's a bit ridiculous to have first year players come in and be the highest paid player on the team, more often than not.
