A group of 10-12 NFL players, commissioner Roger Goodell and select owners will meet at 10 am ET today at NFL offices on Park Avenue, ahead of the scheduled owners meeting that begins at a downtown hotel at 1 pm ET.

That's a topic the owners are expected to address on their own later in the day. Players are hoping to continue their discussions with owners about specific ways the league and teams plan to help the players with their social and community causes. One source told me, "The best outcome would be to give players a reason NOT to kneel," meaning that once the players see evidence of positive change arising from their protests, they would know they had the desired effect.
