No Player Vote Wednesday on NFL Deal
WASHINGTON (AP)-- A person familiar with the NFL negotiations tells The Associated Press that players will not vote Wednesday on a deal to end the lockout.

The person says there remains work to do to finalize an agreement between owners and players. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the process is supposed to remain confidential.

The NFL Players Association's executive committee and representatives of all 32 teams met Wednesday in Washington, but some participants left in the afternoon after reviewing portions of a tentative deal. A second person tells the AP on condition of anonymity that players are going to relay information to teammates.

Owners are meeting in Atlanta on Wednesday, and could vote Thursday.
