NFLPA president Kevin Mawae issued a statement Friday morning saying that the organization will not issue any statements Friday as the league mourns the loss of Myra Kraft, wife of Patriots owner Robert Kraft.

The statement reads:

"Player leadership is discussing the most recent written proposal with the NFL, which includes a settlement agreement, deal terms and the right process for addressing recertification. There will not be any further NFLPA statements today out of respect for the Kraft family while they mourn the loss of Myra Kraft."

Many of the owners, along with NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, are attending the Kraft funeral in Boston today.

Last night, the owners passed a unanimous proposal in Atlanta to lift the lockout, but the players failed to take a vote after that, claiming that they had not received the full details of the final offer.

The players, sources said, very well still could vote on the proposal over the weekend as they continue to sort through the final offer.
