NEW YORK (AP) - NFL commissioner Roger Goodell foresees an uncapped 2010 season as the league and the players' union negotiate a new collective bargaining agreement.
Goodell said Thursday owners are preparing for no salary cap next season, citing the lack of progress in talks with the NFLPA.
Last year, owners opted out of the CBA that was reached in 2006. That agreement included no salary cap in its final year, which both sides believed would spark serious negotiations toward a new contract.
"Because of the timing, we recognize there's a strong reality there will be an uncapped year, and the owners have planned for it,'' Goodell said.
