The NFL and its players have made their final pitch for the 2018 season.
Commissioner Roger Goodell says he is going to “let the NFLPA do its job,” though the commissioner is not yet saying whether he will accept the union’s offer.
The NFL and the union have been engaged in negotiations since March 2017.
The NFLPA wants to pay a cap on its salary cap.
Goodell has said he would prefer a lower cap.
On Friday, Goodell said that he was not going to rule out the possibility of an all-out strike.
He said: “We’re not going anywhere.”NFLPA president DeMaurice Smith said in a statement Friday that the league and the players were “going to continue the dialogue” and “we’ll do our best to reach a deal that will protect our players and the game as a whole.”
The league’s salary cap is set at $169.9 million.
The cap is $1.9 billion above the projected 2018 salary cap of $170.9.
The average salary of a player in the NFL is $10 million.
