New hope for labor deal

ESPN is reporting that the sides will meet today to try and hammer out a deal before the midnight deadline. Even Gene Upshaw is signaling that a deal might be within reach so we might not have a Sunday, Bloody Sunday after all. If a deal is reached it's likely that free agency will be postponed once again.

From the ESPN article:

Gene Upshaw, the executive director of the NFL Players Association, told ESPN's Chris Mortensen that the two sides are meeting in New York again Sunday and that the two sides communicated via e-mail on Saturday night after face-to-face talks broke down Saturday.

In an e-mail to the Washington Post, Gene Upshaw said the two sides were "now in the area where we will get a deal. I think it may be there. It comes down to a few final points."
