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.

Jimmy Garoppolo was out on the practice field for the third time this week (the San Francisco 49ers held a bonus practice on Monday). We won't know exactly how much the starting quarterback worked during today's session until the team issues its practice participation report later this afternoon. Reporters aren't allowed to watch the entire practice, which means missing out on team drills. The Niners listed Garoppolo as limited on Wednesday. On Wednesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan said he is "pretty optimistic" Garoppolo would be available for Sunday's home game against the Indianapolis Colts. However, he was less sure about the status of his rookie quarterback and

The Cleveland Browns have lost two consecutive games. Their quarterback, Baker Mayfield, is ailing. He had his arm in a sling after the Browns' 37-14 loss to the Arizona Cardinals this past weekend and said this of his shoulder: "It feels like s--t." Mayfield suffered a partially torn labrum in Week 2. He landed hard on that same shoulder on Sunday following a sack by Cardinals defender J.J. Watt. With the November 2 trade deadline approaching, San Francisco 49ers fans should brace themselves for a lot of Jimmy Garoppolo chatter now that the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, has a start under his belt. The team has expressed a preference to ride out the season with the more experienced Garoppolo at the helm. Does that change depending on how these next two games
