Is the lockout coming to an end?
The Associated Press is reporting that if an agreement is ratified by Thursday, team executives will be briefed starting that day on how the deal’s terms affect league business.
The sources say the league’s 32 clubs have been told that topics would include the rookie salary system and guidelines for player transactions. They spoke to the AP on condition of anonymity because the process is supposed to remain confidential.
Owners are scheduled to hold a special meeting in Atlanta on Thursday, when they could ratify a new labor contract, if one is reached by then.
Two other people, who have knowledge of the NFL Players Association’s plans, tell the AP that representatives of every team are expected to meet Wednesday in Washington, in preparation for a possible vote.
