"We still have a lot of work to do, but I'm confident that if both sides come together we can reach an agreement," Murphy said.

Meetings to reach a deal have been constant, according to Murphy. There was a bargaining session in Dallas the day before the Packers won the 2011 Super Bowl.

Murphy, a retired Washington Redskins player who was a representative for the NFL Players Association in the early 1980s, now serves as a lead negotiator on behalf of the owners for the NFL.

"I've been involved in bargaining — I've seen it from a player's perspective and now obviously I'm looking at it from a different perspecitve."
