NFL Owners Intends To Vote Thursday, Players Fail Wednesday
Written by  // Wednesday, 20 July 2011 22:22 //

Ed StatonAccording to the Washington Post, NFL officials plan for owners of the league's 32 owners to vote Thursday in Atlanta on a proposed deal with locked-out players that would end the sport's shutdown.


Mark Maske of the Post wrote: "The league's intention for the owners to vote Thursday remain unchanged after player reps met Wednesday in Washington to review the tentative deal, but stopped short of sending it to an immediate ratification vote of all the players.

"We're going to continue to work with the players,'"' Jeff Pash, the NFL's lead labor negotiator, said during a news conference in Atlanta that followed a five-hour meeting of the owners' bargaining committee. 'We'll find out if there are issues that still need to be negotiated, and we're going to work cooperatively with them through the evening and try to have something in place that both sides can vote on Thursday morning.'"

Also, NFL free agency is expected to begin about one week after the finalization of the new CBA. Teams will get three days to study the new labor rules, followed by three days to sign undrafted rookies and "keep their own." 

Free agency should start on the seventh day, now estimated at July 28. Bart Hubbunch of the New York Post describes free agency as a "fire drill...packing four months of moves into about four days. The month of August will be jam-packed with NFL news."
