Representatives from the NFL and NFL Players Association will meet Monday to discuss a possible resolution in implementing a new drug policy, according to Fox Sports' Mike Garafolo.

According to the report, NFLPA president Eric Winston and executive committee member Brian Waters will represent the union. Among the issues up for negotiation are establishing a new threshold for marijuana and other kinds of testing and punishments for DUI arrests.

NFL Players Association executive director DeMaurice Smith said last week that if the NFL changes the drug program, players, including Cleveland Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon and Denver Broncos receiver Wes Welker, who were recently suspended under the old system, should have their punishments altered.  

Gordon was suspended for the entire 2014 season for violating of the league's substance abuse program, and Welker was banned for four games because of a PED violation.
