Owner attendance at meetings

6/16/2011

The NFL has acknowledged three "secret" negotiating sessions with players in labor talks in recent weeks, with the Chicago Tribune noting the presence of some of the owners at the first meeting, and spokesman Greg Aiello -- @gregaiello -- providing the owners in attendance for the last two meetings.

Meeting 1: Jerry Jones (Cowboys), Robert Kraft (Patriots), John Mara (Giants), Jerry Richardson (Panthers), Art Rooney (Steelers)

Meeting 2: Clark Hunt (Chiefs), Robert Kraft (Patriots), John Mara (Giants), Jerry Richardson (Panthers), Dean Spanos (Chargers)

Meeting 3: Clark Hunt (Chiefs), Robert Kraft (Patriots), John Mara (Giants), Jerry Richardson (Panthers), Dean Spanos (Chargers)

This creates a snapshot of the owners who have taken a lead in the negotiations. Kraft, Mara and Richardson are the three whose names appear on each line.

All are members of the league's labor committee.
