Another team has said it is willing to open the books, if it helps to reach a new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

Bears president Ted Phillips told the Chicago Sun-Times, "If the league feels, to get a deal done, they need to release (financials), we're on board. I'm actually proud of how we operate our club. We think we do a good job, revenue-wise and expense-wise."

The Broncos have previously said they would also open their books if it means a deal could get done.

The NFL locked out the players on March 11 after the NFLPA decertified, as the two sides have been unable to agree on a new CBA. One of the main issues is how to split $9 billion of revenue. The players have asked for 10 years of financial records from the 32 teams to see proof that the league's profits are down.
