NFL owners, meeting in Grapevine, Tex., approved a resolution for additional revenue sharing, a step toward opening negotiations with representatives for players on a new collective bargaining agreement.

Franchises split network television revenues equally. The proposal provides for additional sharing of home gates, local television and radio contracts, and other income.

In their offer to the players, owners are expected to include a two-tiered system of unrestricted free agency, a salary cap estimated at $28 million to $30 million, a rookie wage and bonus scale and an increased benefits package.
