Roger Goodell, DeMaurice Smith and a whole host of owners and players stood in front of the National Football League Players Association headquarters a little while ago and delieved a very simple message.
Football is back.
Both Goodell and Smith, along with their deputies, have officially signed off on a 10 year collective bargaining agreement that ensures labor peace in the countries most popular sport for the next decade. Despite a last minute push by the players, there is no opt-out ability for either side in the deal. The lone formality that remains is for all NFL players to recertify their union and agree to the terms of the agreement - this should be completed in the next few days.
All 32 NFL teams will report to training camp sometime this week and all pre- and regular season games, save for the previously canceled Hall of Fame Game, will be played as scheduled.
Today is a great day for football fans everywhere.
