AP Sources: Reps for Owners, Players, in Minnesota
Two people familiar with the situation tell The Associated Press that negotiating teams for NFL owners and players are in Minneapolis and expected to resume talks aimed at ending a lockout now in its fourth month.

Although it is not known when the sides would meet face-to-face, representatives for both groups arrived in Minneapolis on Monday. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because no labor developments are being made public.

It was not immediately known who would be representing each side, although last week players were told the next set of talks would involve Commissioner Roger Goodell, NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, several owners and players.

On Monday, a small group of players met with their attorneys in Minneapolis.
