Players' executive committee to meet Monday

July 24, 2011 - 12:00 PM

NEW YORK (AP) — A vote on a settlement to the lockout is what every NFL fan wants. Nobody is sure when that might happen.

The players' executive committee will meet Monday in Washington after lawyers have worked through the weekend on issues that are holding up an agreement with the owners. Several people with knowledge of the meeting have told The Associated Press that no vote to recommend a deal is certain Monday.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the players association has not revealed its plans.

Owners approved a tentative agreement to end the four-month lockout on Thursday. But the players said they need more information before they can vote.
