From Jay Glazer of FOX Sports:
I said I wouldn't jump in til they agreed... They've FINALLY agreed! Sources say 2 sides this hour FINALLY agree to terms of new CBA.
Peter King reports that the NFLPA's executive committee and Brady plaintiffs will be meeting at 9:00 AM EST, with a conference call for the player representatives beginning at 11:00 AM ET.
King has the nuts and bolts of how this mornings process should play out:
The 10-member Executive Committee and most of the 10 named plaintiffs in the Brady v. NFL antitrust case will gather starting at 9 a.m. Plaintiffs will sign affidavits saying they're satisfied with dismissal of the case; those not in attendance will have the signed affidavits sent to PA headquarters by this morning. Then the 10-member Executive Board of the NFLPA will unanimously approve the proposal, barring a late-night or early-morning setback, sending the deal to the player-rep vote. If all goes well (no one at the PA is worried it won't), a joint press conference with executive director De Smith and his Executive Board members could be held in the early afternoon with commissioner Roger Goodell and some of the league negotiators.
Look for team facilities to be open to players starting tomorrow - along with the beginning of free agency.
Things are about to get nuts.
