To those readers who have stuck with us through the NFL lockout, we thank you. To those readers who are just now coming back, welcome back.Football is back, baby. The NFL players approved the new labor agreement with the owners meaning the NFL lockout is over.
That entire day was totally nuts. I had to go back to the archives to remind myself of everything but in this day alone the lockout ended, the Chiefs training camp schedule came out, tickets went on sale, employees were reimbursed, undrafted free agents were signed, unrestricted free agents were lost and all kinds of other free agency rumors.
I rounded up a few of our stories on this day, July 25, one year ago. Pretty wild stuff. Take a step through the time machine after the jump.
