Let the games begin!  We can stop holding our breath....Thanks to FOX Sports.com breaking the news.....reports are that the NFL players approved the agreement!!!


Representatives from the 32 NFL teams voted unanimously to approve a new collective bargaining agreement after a lengthy conference call Monday afternoon.

The player reps approved the 10-year agreement after the executive committee, who met here at the NFL Players Association headquarters, gave its approval. The CBA can’t fully ratify the agreement until the NFLPA recertifies as a union, which will likely take place by Wednesday.

Starting on Tuesday, teams will be able to sign their rookies and start negotiating with free agents. However, no free agents can be signed until Friday.
