Bears make plans in case of a lockout

3/4/2011 - NFL Chicago Bears

Despite the NFL and union agreeing on Friday to extend the collective bargaining agreement for seven days, the Chicago Bears have made contingency plans in the case of a lockout.

The Bears, who met on Monday to discuss plans, will not have any layoffs, furloughs or pay cuts, according to a league source. But if games are missed, some employees will experience pay cuts between 15-25 percent, dependent upon the employee's level.
