Washington, D.C. - The clock has stopped once again on negotiations aimed at a new NFL collective bargaining agreement. 

Less than 24 hours after the NFL and NFLPA agreed to a 24-hour extension of CBA talks, the two sides added another week to the process. The league and the players association announced this afternoon that they would extend talk through next Friday. 

Will it lead to a new agreement? Too soon to know. There remain signfiicant differences between the two sides, but there was enough progress during this week's talks to convince the sides to continue discussions. 

The sides will be off for the weekend and return Monday for more talks under the guidance of federal mediator George Cohen.
