NFL Lockout News 'Positive,' Says Patriots Owner Robert Kraft

Progress continues to be made toward ending the NFL lockout, says New England Patriots owner Robert Kraft, though he cautions there's still a long way to go. He says he's glad issues are being worked on by NFL and NFLPA principals instead of lawyers. While one smaller Massachusetts institution is curiously proclaiming the lockout over*, we'll take Mr. Kraft's word that the two sides remain far apart.

Kraft isn't the first major NFL figure to express positive vibes this week that important parts of the two sides are at least talking and slowly bridging the gap. He says he wants football back as bad as fans do and hopes no game weeks have to be missed. 

* Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio heartily slaps down this notion with vigor and great spirit.
