Goodell, NFL Labor Committee Presents To Ownership Today

NFL ownership meets in Chicago today to go over the latest proposal that could be sent to the former players union as soon as this week.

Yesterday afternoon, the National Football League's ownership labor committee, including Packers CEO Mark Murphy, met in Chicago in advance of today's general session with ownership from all 32 NFL teams.

The committee will be charged with helping Roger Goodell sell the progress that has been made with the former players union during face to face meetings over the course of the last month.

The last time all the owners were together under one roof was in Indianapolis prior to the first "secret" meetings between the league and the players. The group will painstakingly review the current proposal before giving the labor committee authorization to present it to the players as an official offer. Nine votes are needed to block the proposal and there certainly will be opposition within the room.

Goodell's legacy could hinge on whether or not he is able to keep the number of dissatisfied owners to eight or less.
