According to ESPN's John Clayton, the players offered to return to the bargaining table for a week of talks on March 28 only to be turned down by the owners.
The NFL refuses to negotiate unless the trade association recertifies as a union.

If Nelson fails to grant the injunction, the leverage swings heavily to the owners' side.
