A joint-report by ESPN reporters John Clayton, Chris Mortensen, and Adam Schefter has yielded this wonderful article, which is headlined “2011 NFL Lockout: Owners, players come to deal on all points, sources say”.
This report declares that great breakthroughs have been made, and the lockout will probably end on Monday, when the NFLPA* votes to approve the owner-ratified-CBA.
Admittedly, it’s hard to trust anything that is being said about the lockout ending, especially with the big debacle on Thursday where everyone thought the lockout was over. You can head over to ESPN and check out the article for yourself. It’s a long article, and it’s quite mucky and confusing. Just know that a “deal is getting done and football is coming back”.
