2010 NFL Draft Round 1

ATLANTA (AP) — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, expressing his frustration over the lack of progress in labor talks, says, “It’s time to get to the table and negotiate.”

Speaking after an owners meeting Tuesday, Goodell says that “it takes a commitment to get it done. We have to see that.”

Goodell stresses the importance of the right to have a collective bargaining agreement — the current one expires March 4 — and adds, “There are things that need to be addressed and we need to address those responsibly so that everybody can win.”

Goodell adds that the NFL Players Association’s filing of a collusion claim is “more litigation. I’ve said before, this is not going to get resolved through litigation. It will get resolved through negotiation.”
