MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Jerry Jones has taken a seat at the NFL mediation table.

The Dallas Cowboys owner joined the NFL's contingent on Tuesday morning in Minneapolis as court-ordered negotiations resumed following a three-day break. Jones walked in with NFL commissioner Roger Goodell and others, including Denver owner Pat Bowlen and Green Bay Packers CEO Mark Murphy.

DeMaurice Smith, the head of the players' trade association, did not attend due to a family emergency.

Michael Hausfeld, an attorney representing retired players, says both sides are serious about negotiating and the mediation is "no charade."

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson ordered the talks, which lasted 13 hours over two days last week. Her ruling on the players' request to lift the lockout is expected any day.
