Settlement passes among NFL owners

Jul 21, 2011 at 4:03 PM--


The first step in ending the NFL lockout, which began on March 11, has finally taken place. On the 132nd day of the lockout, the NFL team owners have voted on the settlement and the new CBA has passed.

The final voting results were 31 to nothing, with only the Oakland Raiders not voting.

The league will be preparing to open up training facilities on Saturday with the league year starting on Wednesday.

During the process, the Hall of Fame game between the Rams and the Bears has been cancelled.

The ball is in the players' court now as everyone waits to see what their next move will be. A conference call among the players will take place at 5 pm Pacific and it is possible that the players will be presented with information on any last minute changes that may have taken place. It is also possible that they may vote on the settlement terms on this call as well.

In order for the lockout to end, the players must take the following steps:

- Settle the Brady versus the NFL and television money deals.
- Vote to re-certify the NFLPA as a union.
- Vote to ratify the new CBA settlement.

UPDATE - 5:30 PM:

Jay Glazer of NFL Network is reporting that the players are saying that they are not going to vote tonight on the conference call that is taking place right now. Reports are that the conference call is rather chaotic and that the call itself is not going very well at the moment.

La Canfora: Strong expectation among NFL GMs that 49ers try to trade Jimmy Garoppolo this week

The San Francisco 49ers have repeatedly stated that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo remains in the team's plans for 2021. That would mean a rookie sitting behind him for at least the upcoming season, which makes sense. The 49ers are built to win now and have shown they can do so with Garoppolo at the helm. However, his durability has become a concern after missing 23 games over the past three seasons. Maybe that won't remain the plan. Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports reports that there is a "very strong" expectation around the league that San Francisco will make an effort to trade Garoppolo before or even during the draft. "Timing isn't great with 5 QBs about to go in 1st round, but Jimmy G's future there now seen as bleak," wrote La Canfora via

The San Francisco 49ers' 2020 NFL season was arguably the most disappointing season over the last decade purely due to the high expectations the team had set for itself by making the Super Bowl the season prior. The underwhelming season was primarily plagued with injuries in addition to holes on the roster that were neglected in the 2020 offseason. However, the Niners started the 2021 offseason with an underrated free agency period during which they were able to retain most of their free agents, including Trent Williams, Jason Verrett, Kyle Juscyk, Jaquiski Tartt, and more while bringing in key role players in Alex Mack and Samson Ebukam. Even after this successful signing period, the 49ers needed more depth and starters at specific holes at quarterback, offensive line,

This is Part 2 of my draft grades. Part 1 can be found here. The San Francisco 49ers certainly had a very successful start to their 2021 NFL Draft with their selections of Trey Lance, Aaron Banks, Trey Sermon, and Ambry Thomas. However, even with the quality picks in the first half of the draft, the Niners still could improve in certain positions such as their secondary, primarily safety, as well as premium offensive positions like the offensive line and wide receivers. Rounds 4-7 of the draft are crucial for teams to take players who have outstanding potential but still have notable flaws or injury concerns. Let's jump into the second half of the draft and evaluate just how



Steve Mariucci picks Justin Fields for 49ers in NFL Network live mock draft

Making a choice for the 49ers in Sunday's NFL Network live draft didn't seem to come easy for Steve Mariucci, but when the time came for him to put on the GM hat for his former team, he made the decision many fans hope to see come to fruition when the real draft gets underway Thursday night. Mariucci was a natural fit to make the call at pick three in the NFL Network's draft, which featured 32 different personalities making selections for the 32 NFL teams. Mariucci, who was the head coach in San Francisco from 1997 to 2002 and is now an analyst for the NFL Network, says his choice would be Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields instead of Alabama quarterback Mac Jones and North Dakota State quarterback Trey Lance. "I'm going to take Justin Fields," Mariucci said.
