The NFL lockout is finally coming to a close. The plan is for the 13 man Executive Committee to vote on the contract today. Then the 10 original plaintiffs will sign off on the deal. After that the 32 team player reps agree to it & then the vote by the balance of the players would take place. A simple majority would certify the contract.
Tuesday would see team facilities open & the signing of draft picks & rookie free agents. Teams could begin speaking with free agents on Tuesday & free agency would begin Friday evening. Some teams would begin camp on Wednesday, some Thursday, Friday & Sunday.
