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.

The NFL will announce the entire 2022 slate of matchups on Thursday night. That's when we'll learn the dates and times for all 272 regular-season games. However, we've known the opponents for a while now. If the San Francisco 49ers are to return to the playoffs for the third time in four years, it won't be an easy road. San Francisco's upcoming opponents went 154-135 in 2021. The team's schedule will include seven matchups against opponents coming off a playoff appearance (Rams twice, Cardinals twice, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Raiders). Those opponents had a total winning percentage of .533 in 2021, which is good enough to tie with the Kansas City Chiefs as the fifth-toughest schedule

The San Francisco 49ers' rookie minicamp kicked off Friday afternoon, with the 49ers revealing the rookie jersey numbers prior to media availability. Sixth-round selection Nick Zakelj, who will wear No. 63, spoke with the media on Friday for the first time since draft night and shared a rather interesting fact about his football childhood.

Mack began his career as a member of the Cleveland Browns, playing from 2009-2015 before stints with the Falcons and the 49ers.
