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.
