NFL LOCKOUT UPDATE: Owners Approve New CBA, Lockout Almost Over

One down, one to go! The NFL lockout is almost over and the return of NFL football is nearly complete!

NFL owners have voted unanimously 31-0 (Raiders abstained) in favor of the new collective bargaining agreement and settling of the Brady v. NFL anti-trust lawsuit. Yeah, baby!

All that's left is for the players to approve, which I'm sure will happen. They have a conference call scheduled for 8 p.m. EST. 

Roger Goodell is expected to speak with the media very shortly.
