NFL Lockout: Players Vote Unanimously to Ratify CBA, Lockout Over

The day of jubilation is here, football fans—the NFL lockout is all but officially over. In fact, Roger Goodell and DeMaurice Smith are meeting the press shortly.

DeMaurice Smith and the NFLPA just approached the media announcing they had recommended the approval of the deal, and he re-affirmed that the vote was unanimous.

With this vote, the proposal now goes to the 10 plaintiffs in the “Brady” case, and Albert Breer of NFL Network has reported that they have already agreed to ratify the CBA, so all that is left is taking it to the courts to make it official, as well as the re-unionization of the NFLPA as soon as possible.

Reports of training camp dates starting already on Wednesday should come to fruition, and football should be back as we know it. As of right now, there is only one other question to ask:

Are you ready for some football?
