NFL, Players' Union Extend Talks

The NFL and the players' union agreed to extend talks on a new collective agreement for another week, the League-owned NFL Network reported on Friday.

The parties had already agreed to a 24-hour extension before the original deadline of 11.59 pm Thursday (0459 GMT) but added another seven days after speaking with a mediator on Friday. They are grappling over the NFL's $9 billion annual revenue.
