Your Daily NFL Lockout News Update

We're getting closer and closer to a new labor agreement that would end the NFL lockout so we're reverting back to daily updates of what's happening with the owners and players.

Last night the lawyers met in New York to prepare a draft of the new labor agreement. It's believed that the players will vote on that agreement at some point on Wednesday. The NFLPA executive committee, including Kansas City Chiefs G Brian Waters, was in Washington D.C. on Tuesday, and they'll be joined by the rest of the player reps, presumably including G Rudy Niswanger and possibly alternates LB Andy Studebaker and S Jon McGraw, later today.

The goal is to vote on the agreement. Let's hope they vote yes and send this thing to the owners.

On Thursday, the NFL owners are meeting in Atlanta where we're hoping at least 24 of the 32 owners will ratify the new collective bargaining agreement. If that happens, then this thing is basically over and we're transitioning to free agency and all that good stuff.

So today and tomorrow are the two biggest days we've seen in the lockout.
