NFL owners have broached the subject of negotiating an extension to the current collective bargaining agreement with the NFLPA in recent months and discussions are ongoing, sources told Dan Graziano of ESPN.

The impetus for coming back to the table is the league wanting to secure money for an Oakland Raiders stadium in Las Vegas, as they’ve exhausted all the stadium credits included in the 2011 deal, Graziano reports.

While the players would reportedly listen to overtures from the league, they would obviously be asking for concessions, and the commissioner’s disciplinary role will likely be a major point of contention.

With plans for a Raiders move to Vegas moving forward, it could force the league to give up more power than they’d want to in order to secure business interests.
