The NFL has suspended plans to make game officials full-time employees as contract negotiations with the NFL Referees Association continue, according to ESPN, which cited multiple unidentified sources.

Instead of making the switch to hiring full-time officials, the league will go back to using its previous structure of having a full roster of officials who will work part time.

As ESPN notes, both sides are hoping to avoid what happened with officials in 2012 when the NFL used replacement officials for several weeks after failing to reach an agreement in time to start the season, resulting in an ugly lockout.
