NFL Lockout: Roger Goodell, DeMaurice Smith Lead Owners and Players to 10 Year Labor Deal

NFL Fans have not had any sense of normalcy in terms of football since the Super Bowl, and even then, the lockout loomed large. Even during the draft, fans were thinking about why their teams couldn’t make trades, how they would fill holes through free agency, among many other concerns.

Now, on the dawn of NFL training camps, the owners and players have agreed to a deal, and in front of the media as a collective, Roger Goodell only needed to say three words to get fans excited and moving on from all of this legal talk:

“Football is back”

Football is back, indeed, and now it’s time to focus on what happens on the field. A record amount of transactions are expected, and players can report to team facilities on Wednesday.

Undrafted free agents and rookie signings are open starting Tuesday, so buckle in NFL fans, because it’s going to be a wild ride!
