WASHINGTON (AP) -- A negotiating session between the NFL and players' union representatives in Washington has been canceled. Both sides met Wednesday to discuss a new collective bargaining agreement, but they canceled plans to continue talking Thursday. There also were talks Saturday in Dallas before the Super Bowl, the first formal discussions since November. NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah says he wishes negotiations were taking place Thursday. Neither Atallah nor NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith would discuss why the talks were halted. Team owners opted out of the CBA in 2008 and the current contract expires March 3.
