The NFL lockout is over, according to ESPN a deal has been reached, and I’m relieved, but probably not for the reason that you think I am…
The NFL Players Association and the league’s owners have reached agreement on the remaining points needed in their 10-year labor deal, sources from both sides said. Despite the fact the new agreement will require a majority vote from the players, that part of the deal between the two sides is considered a formality, according to sources.
I’ve got a few friends who got drafted just before the lockout started and they’ve been close to broke/jobless during the whole ordeal, so I’m glad they’ll get a chance to make their livelihood.
The official vote and meeting between the players and the league owners goes down today, so I’ll keep you updated if something goes south, otherwise, it’s safe to say that you can go ahead and get your NFL fantasy brackets together.
