Both people spoke on the condition of anonymity Thursday because the negotiations are private. Analysis: One person said the sides haven't exchanged offers in a few weeks, raising concerns that a deal won't be completed before the start of the season in three weeks. The season opener is not considered a hard deadline. The 25-year-old will make just over $8 million in the final year of his contract this season. Earlier this week, Bills general manager Doug Whaley had no update on the talks, but added "these take time."

Analysis: The NFL announced the suspension on Thursday. The suspension means the two-time Pro Bowl selection will miss Buffalo's home game against Indianapolis on Sept. 13. The punishment stems from Dareus being arrested and charged with possession of a controlled substance and drug paraphernalia after being stopped by Alabama State Police on May 5.

Judge Gerald Gorman tentatively scheduled a hearing for April 7 should the two sides reach an agreement. If not, Dareus' case will go to trial on May 19.
