NFL owners' meeting is over


Posted by ESPN.com's Matt Mosley

As hard as this is for me to accept, the owners' meeting has come to a halt. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell stopped by the media tent, helped himself to some a churro and then held a news conference during which he indicated that owners could vote on a 17- or 18-game schedule as soon as May. He also talked about the prospect of a developmental league that would help supply talent to the NFL.

With a bit a free time on my hands, I drove into Laguna Beach for lunch. I bumped into Cowboys coach Wade Phillips and his wife Laurie on the street and had a nice visit. They will celebrate 40 years of marriage Sunday, so I congratulated them on behalf of the Beast.

Now it's time for me to board a plane and write an Eagles column. Look forward to visiting with you tomorrow.
