NFL Owners, Players Discuss Revenue Split Proposal

ROSEMONT, Ill. - NFL owners and players are discussing a straight split of income in the next collective bargaining agreement that would net the players just under 50 percent of total revenues.

A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press the players' share would approach the 50 percent the NFLPA has said it has received throughout the last decade. But the expense credits - about $1 billion last year - that the league takes off the top would disappear.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the negotiations are supposed to be confidential.

The owners are holding a special meeting Tuesday to discuss proposals made in recent negotiations with the players.
