Kansas City Chiefs owner Clark Hunt is among several owners going back to the table for negotiations with the players to end the NFL lockout. Hunt is joined by NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, New York Giants owner John Mara and Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones, among other owners. The players are repped by NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, Domonique Foxworth, Kevin MawaePete Kendall, Jeff Saturday, Sean Morey and others.

The goal of course is to end the NFL lockout. Various reports are suggesting that the two sides are making progress on the biggest issue -- the money. There are other issues to discuss but it's believed that once they can agree on the revenue split the rest of it will fall into place a little more smoothly.

Clark Hunt and the other owners and players had a long day on Thursday meeting for over 12 hours, according to stakeout man Albert Breer of NFL Network.

But the owners and players stayed at it for 12½ hours, meeting until 10:30 p.m. ET in Manhattan, with a few staying behind to complete wrap-up work and lingering until 11:30 p.m. The result, according to those involved, was a healthy amount of progress on the core economic issues that made the talks so difficult during another long session.

Lawyers for both sides met in New York on Tuesday and Wednesday before Goodell, Smith and the owners and players rejoined the table on Thursday and now on Friday. Hunt has been there on both Thursday and Friday, according to reports.
