WASHINGTON (AP) -- A person familiar with the NFL negotiations tells The Associated Press that players will not vote today on a deal to end the lockout.

The person says there remains work to do to finalize an agreement between owners and players. The person spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the process is supposed to remain confidential.

The NFL Players Association's executive committee and representatives of all 32 teams met today in Washington, but some participants left in the afternoon after reviewing portions of a tentative deal. A second person told the AP on condition of anonymity that players were going to relay information to teammates.

It's possible players will vote tomorrow.

Early today, NFLPA president Kevin Mawae cautioned not to assume the lockout will be over by the weekend, saying that his group is "not tied" to a deadline for getting a deal done in the next 24 hours.
