CHICAGO (CBS) – The NFL owners and players union could return to mediation sessions as soon as late next week, according to a CBSSports.com report.
It’s still unsure if the mediation will be overseen by federal mediator George Cohen, who oversaw the first mediation sessions, or under federal jurisdiction in Minnesota.
The owners are pushing for Cohen and the players are pushing for the federal jurisdiction in Minnesota option.
According to CBSSports.com, sources from both sides were optimistic that a deal could be worked out if mediation started up again.
