Football fans have apparently received a great present on Monday morning. FOX Sports' Jay Glazer is reporting that the owners and players have agreed on the terms of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement to end the NFL lockout. The two sides reportedly worked into the wee hours of the morning to hash out the arrangement.
The player representatives and the players themselves must still vote Monday to make it official, but that is merely a formality, Glazer reports.
The new arrangement has a different timeline than originally suggested, with Glazer reporting that some training camps could open as early as Thursday.
Sources within the negotiations told FOXSports.com that under the new agreement, the schedule will be different than originally reported. Under the new terms, team facilities will open as early as Tuesday and training camps will begin Thursday for 10 teams, Friday for another 10 and over the weekend for the remaining 12 teams.
