NFL Owners Meeting, Reggie Bush And Peyton Manning
Written by 

Update 2:05: Reggie Bush 

ESPN is reporting that the owners will vote between 4:30 -6:30 today (CST) and it is expected at least 24 of the 32  will vote yes. 

A conference call is scheduled for the players at 9 p.m., but it's not clear if a vote will actually take place.

NFL owners and a huge media contingent were in Atlanta this morning for meetings to start at 11 a.m. 

While optimism remains in the air, there still remain some outstanding issues to solve, according to Pro Football Talk. 

From Liz Mullen of SportsBusiness Journal; " NFL players, owners worked last night, but were not able to resolve issues standing in the way to a deal." 

 From Vic Carucci of Cleveland Browns.com; "As others have reported, I hear there is work to be done to get a new CBA. However, I think optimism accompanies the humidity in the air." 

Alec Marvez of FoxSports.com writes that no conference call has been set up yet for NFLP reps. 

Get ready for a long day of waiting for updates. 

SOME hither, others yon: Per MSNBC--Colts owner Jim Irsay said on Friday he expected Peyton Manning (neck surgery) to be "ready to go" for the start of the season." "He can't get cleared without being able to consult with team doctors during the lockout," said Irsay. Manning didn't throw during the recent Manning Passing Academy, but hasn't missed a game in his 13-year career... 

NFL personnel guru Gil Brandt of NFL.com chatted with Reggie Bush recently at a weekend in Dallas and said the Saints running back "feels a real sense of loyalty to the Saints franchise." 

"I think the Saints would like to keep Bush and he would like to stay in New Orleans," writes Brandt. "It all depends to whether or not the Saints and Bush and his agent can come up with a new contract that involves less money. But they'll both want to make it work. 

"I've heard the stories out there that say Bush won't take a pay cut to stay in New Orleans, but he did not say that to me. So it's all a matter of working out a deal." 

The Saints could match the $11.8 million Bush is due to make this season by spreading that figure out over three or four years..  Reports are that Bush could get offers of $5 to $6 million to sign with another team as a free agent.
