Don't expect the NFL lockout to end Tuesday, but pieces are falling into place for it to essentially conclude Wednesday and to be announced as over on Thursday. Adam Schefter reports the players are planning to vote Wednesday on whether to approve the Brady v. NFL settlement, assuming everything else has been ironed out by then.
The Washington Post's Mark Maske has more details about the voting process. The executive committee of players will meet Tuesday, being joined by team representatives the following day. If all goes well, they'll approve the deal that's on the table and reform the NFLPA, with the vote following reformation.
The vote is open to all players, and requires only majority. Players can email in their votes or participate in a conference call. If all goes well, we could be picking apart the NFL's official new collective bargaining agreement before the end of the week.
