Players won't vote Wednesday on a deal to end the NFL lockout

July 20, 2011 |  2:41 pm


The NFL lockout will last at least another day, as NFL players will not vote Wednesday on a deal to end the labor dispute.

The NFL Players Assn.'s executive committee and representatives of all 32 teams met Wednesday in Washington, but some participants left in the afternoon. It is not known at this time if a tentative deal was reached. When a deal is reached, the team representatives will bring it to their players, who will then vote whether to accept the deal or reject it.

Owners are meeting in Atlanta this week and could vote Thursday if a deal is reached.
