Burress, Giants working towards settlement

New York wasted no time suspending Giants Plaxico Burress, and the lawyers wasted no time trying to get it resolved before it goes to an arbitrator.

One day after the Giants suspended Burress for one game against Seattle, lawyers for the NFL Players Association started talking to the the NFL lawyers about a possible grievance.

But before it goes to the arbitrator under the CBA grievance procedures, there could be a settlement between the NFL and NFLPA lawyers. Despite several hours of discussion Thursday afternoon, no settlement had been reached — for now.

Talks are expected to continue Friday, with all sides wanting to reach a resolution as quickly as possible. But no resolution Thursday … so far. Now the sides will hope for one Friday.
