Over the several days there have been reports that the NFL owners and players are getting very close to a labor agreement that would end the NFL lockout. The details might be different from person to person but the end result seems close.
Atlanta Falcons star wide receiver Roddy White appeared on ESPN Tuesday to talk about the lockout and said that he's been told teams are expecting players back at work by the beginning of next week...assuming the deal is done.
I think it'll be done by at least Thursday, cause they want to get everyone in the building by Monday or Tuesday, so, you know, I'm excited. I'm ready to go back to my locker. Just sit back in my locker and just wait for my teammates to walk through the door and handshakes and things like that. Get ready to get on this grind and go out there and win us a Super Bowl.
