'Secret' meetings shift to Boston

Representatives on both sides of the NFL’s labor stalemate met in the Boston area Wednesday, resuming negotiations with hopes of moving closer toward a new collective bargaining agreement.

A person with knowledge of the talks told the Associated Press that commissioner Roger Goodell and other members of the league’s labor committee were in attendance, along with NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and several players.

The two sides are reportedly supposed to meet again today in the Boston area.

This latest session comes a day after the NFL owners meetings in Rosemont, Ill., where Goodell went over some the details of their newest proposal with several NFL executives. It’s also the latest round of “secret” talks, which have been held over the past two weeks in relative anonymity here on Long Island as well as Maryland’s eastern shore.
