The conference call that was held among NFL Players Association player representatives has ended, and they did not take a vote on the proposal.

In fact, the NFLPA didn't have the exact proposal the owners passed earlier today until very late in the conference call.

The players will need time to go over the entire proposal and they will not be rushed, NFLPA sources said.

No one knows how much time that will take, but one key NFLPA source said, "We haven't come this far to derail a deal."
