Next Decision On NFL Lockout Coming Wednesday

The NFL lockout has been lifted which would suggest the new league has started and we're open for business again. Unfortunately, things aren't that easy. No one is really sure what's going on.

Judge Susan Nelson lifted the lockout but the league, as expected, is requesting a stay -- basically they want the lockout to remain in place while they go through the appeals process. 

According to the Associated Press, this grey area of the lockout being lifted, but a stay not yet being granted will remain for another day.

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson has given the players until 9 a.m. Central time Wednesday to reply to the league's expedited motion for a stay that would freeze her decision pending further appeals.

So we'll be in limbo for another day. 

The timing in all of this is very important as the NFL draft is only days away. If the lockout remains lifted, it's possible free agency could be coming soon -- very soon. Like this week.
