WASHINGTON — NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell, New York Giants owner John Mara and NFL lead negotiator Jeff Pash have arrived at a federal mediator's office to resume negotiations on a new labor deal.

Representatives from the NFL and the players' union are expected to meet later Monday after taking a break in talks over the weekend.

The collective bargaining agreement now expires at the end of Friday, thanks to two extensions. The league and NFL Players Association have made progress during 11 days at the Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service, but still remain apart on key economic issues.

The NFL has not lost games to a work stoppage since 1987.

The current CBA was agreed to in 2006. Owners exercised an opt-out clause in 2008.
