Goodell: “Common ground is key to future labor talks”

Commissioner Roger Goodell

Commissioner Roger Goodell is in New York this week after chairing a successful league meeting that was heavy on football decisions and off-the-field business presentations in Florida.

What about the next round of CBA talks?

“We have to find common ground with the NFLPA,” Goodell said as the meetings wrapped up in Orlando. “The real issue for us is to get back and focus on those things we can do to grow the game and grow the opportunities for everyone participating. We want a fair agreement that everyone is going to do well in, including the players.” 

No date is set yet for the next labor negotiating session, but Goodell will attend a meeting of the NFL Youth Football Fund board in New York this week. The Youth Football Fund board consists of League and NFLPA representatives.
