The NFL is set to meet with owners about a potential new multi-year contract that could include a new agent, league sources told ESPN.

The owners will discuss the deal, which could include an increase in the salary cap, during an owners meeting Wednesday, league spokesman Greg Aiello said Thursday.

Owners are set to discuss the agreement during their weekly meeting, according to a league source.

The league would not confirm whether the meeting will take place in person or over the phone, but the league source indicated the meeting would be held over the conference call.

Aiella declined to say whether the league planned to increase the salary-cap ceiling this season or beyond.

NFL teams will not receive any compensatory picks this season.

The salary cap is set at $68 million this season, and the league would need to increase it to $84 million by the start of next season.

Players on NFL rosters earn base salaries, which are the amount paid each season by a team to a player, including incentives.

Players can make up to $20 million in guaranteed money during their contract year.

NFL owners are scheduled to meet at the end of the week.
