CBA deadline extended a week

Negotiations are set to resume Monday, with the sides taking the weekend off.
The seven-day clock would not stop in that case, meaning both parties will have five more days of negotiations, lasting through Friday, March 11.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell told reporters Friday that the existing differences between the league and union are best addressed through continued communication.
"This is going to get resolved through negotiations, not through litigations," Goodell said. "So, talking is better than litigating.
