NFL, NFLPA Agree To Terms On New CBA

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.

Boy are training camps going to be hot affairs this year. On to the free agent free-for- all. Funny tho, not at all free

So teams can begin training camp before a new league year and Free agency signing begins?

DOes anybody expect the Pack to be involved in FA at all outside of signing some of their own UFA. I think Jenkins is gone but am not sure about James Jones. Any Thoughts?

I was just looking at a report about the terms as it relates to keeping yoru own FAs. If I understand the article correctly, and if the guy writing the article knows what he's talking about, the cap exemption would only be for three players per team, for a total of $3M per player and for no more than $1M per year. I'm not sure if the whole contract has to be under that amount, or if that is the portion that does not count against the cap. Either way, I can't see the Packers being able to keep Jenkins under this scenario. And I think someone will offer Jones a lot more than $1M per year.

I've had some extra special beer, bratwurst, & cheese saved for this occasion. Excuse me while I go fire up the grill, grab the slicer, and ice the cooler!

Now I can go back to my blissful ignorance and pretend it never happened...

This just in...Justin Harrell, eager to get back to Green Bay, sustained a flight related injury when he tore a bicep tendon putting his carry-on into the overhead bin. He is expected to miss all of training camp and at least the first 12 games of the 2011 season.

Can't wait to get this thing going. Tanned and rested the Pack will repeat.
