NFL Lockout To End As Players Pass New CBA With Unanimous Vote

The NFL lockout is finally over. After 136 days of endless negotiations and false starts, the owners and players have agreed on a new Collective Bargaining Agreement. All that was left was for the players to do their part, and vice president George Atallah of the (sort of, since they decertified) NFL Players Association has confirmed they have on Twitter.

 

A joint statement officially announcing the news is expected shortly. It is still unclear if Atallah's tweet refers to the NFLPA* Executive Committee or all the players as a whole, but either way, there will be football again.
