The National Football League Players Association is set to host a meeting on July 1 in Baltimore to discuss its proposed contract for the 2018-19 season.
It will include an attempt to renegotiate the existing collective bargaining agreement with the NFL Players Association.
The league has repeatedly indicated that it will not be willing to negotiate a new contract with the union.
The NFLPA had been hoping for a meeting during the summer.
The NFLPA’s executive director, DeMaurice Smith, said Friday that he expects players to “come out with a united message.”
The meeting is expected to include an “interview” with the players’ union’s executive committee and representatives from each union’s players’ association, the Baltimore Sun reported.
The meeting will be conducted by NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, who previously met with the owners of the NFL Network.
The union and NFL Players Federation are still at odds over a contract extension.
The players’ representatives say they want to increase the salary cap to $155 million, which is the minimum salary the league allows.
They also want to renegotiating the current CBA that expires in 2019, which they say the union doesn’t agree with.
