NFL looking at possible replacement officials

"There's not any one hangup," Millis said. "It's all part of the process. We have not talked to anyone about this (letter). It's not a product of any CBA negotiations.

"We will negotiate in May and June and July to reach an agreement. We want to get it done as soon as we can. There is no

impasse at all."

NFL spokesman Greg Aiello agreed.

"We expect to reach an agreement, but [url=]cheap nfl jerseys[/url] must have contingency plans in place," Aiello said.

Fox Sports first reported the letter sent by the league to its officiating scouting department.

The NFL's search would target retired college officials and perhaps current ones who would be qualified to work professional

games. In 2001, the league used replacement [url=]nfl jerseys cheap[/url] [url=]wholesale jerseys[/url] officials for one preseason game, then the first weekend of the regular season. But after the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, a new deal soon was reached that carried through 2005. Another contract was agreed on in 2006.

The NFL Referees Association has 121 onfield members and also represents the 17 replay officials and more than 100 retired officials. Millis is a former onfield official and former supervisor of Big 12 officials.
