The NFL owners started gathering in New Orleans on Sunday.
The meetings, which will have a decidedly labor tone, will run through Tuesday.
The NFL owners meeting comes after more than 100 players, including Falcons player representative Coy Wire, from the NFLPA met in Florida last week for their annual meeting.
In addition to more comments on the labor situation and the league’s desire to return to negotiations, the league’s competition committee will propose major changes to kickoffs and use of instant replay.
Ray Anderson, the league’s executive vice president of football operations, and Falcons president Rich McKay, the chairman of the competition committee, held a teleconference last week to preview the changes.
PLAYER FINES: Anderson made it clear that repeat offenders will face suspension.
