Kraft at Goodell's Super Bowl address

Patriots owner Robert Kraft is in Fort Lauderdale, Florida today and is in attendance for NFL commissioner Roger Goodell's annual Super Bowl press conference. Kraft is heavily involved in league issues and Goodell's press conference, which began at 11:30 a.m., comes at an important time in the history of labor relations in the NFL.

With owners and players currently far apart in negotiations for a new collective bargaining agreement, talk is heating up about a possible lockout in 2011.

Kraft is considered one of the NFL's "power brokers" among owners and thus figures to be involved, from a league perspective, in how things unfold in the months to come.
