As the NFL Players Association and the NFL continue to haggle over the league's drug policies, including trying to adopt testing for human growth hormone, there's still no deal.

And  NFLPA president Eric Winston made that clear in a statement released today.

"?Players who have been to any collective bargaining negotiation understand that we never describe them as 'very close,'" Winston said. "We look at every issue we can to improve the rights and benefits of players. This process takes time, it takes creativity and it is never easy.

"?We want to get a new agreement in place but we understand the responsibility we have to the players and to the game. It is critical that we get this right.?"
