The NFL will reportedly put an end to the lockout tomorrow after players agreed to the terms of the collective bargaining agreement the owners approved last week. The next week going to be wild.
Green Bay Packers president Mark Murphy has let it be known the NFL is done negotiating, which could either lead to the lockout ending next week or a stalemate that makes it drag on for some time.
