Report: NFL Owners, Players Reach Deal That Likely Ends Lockout

NEW YORK (CBS) — A new collective bargaining agreement to end the NFL lockout has been agreed upon, according to a report from’s Mike Freeman.

“It’s done,” one player source told Freeman. “We have an agreement. Now we just have to vote.”

Now, the majority of players (50% plus one player) have to vote for the new deal on Monday, and they reportedly will do so. Owners voted for their side of the deal last Thursday with a 31-0 majority (with the Raiders owners abstaining).

Freeman is also reporting that the new league year can’t start until the fifth day after the CBA is ratified and signed, and training camps couldn’t start until two days after that.
