NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith says he and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell are working to finalize a Collective Bargaining Agreement that would run through the 2016 season. "We're going to negotiate a six-year deal," Smith told FOXSports.com at the NFL's Rookie Symposium. The CBA extension approved in 2006 was also six years in length. In 2008, owners unanimously voted to truncate the deal by two years. The NFL is now heading toward a work stoppage in March 2011 when the current CBA expires.
