Only 100 days remain until the collective-bargaining agreement expires between the owners and the NFL Player’s Association and NFLPA Executive Director DeMaurice Smith thinks the outlook is grim.┬áSmith is aggravated that the NFL continues to ask for $1 billion from the players, but has been unwilling to provide team-by-team financial information, with the exception the Green Bay Packers which are publicly owned.

The union’s attitude is much gloomier than owners like Robert Kraft, who has been insistent that a deal will get done.
