NFL Lockout: Player Reps Unanimously OK New CBA

The NFL Lockout is, for all intents and purposes, over. NFLPA spokesperson George Atallah tweeted just a little while ago that player reps have voted unanimously to accept the new collective bargaining agreement. The league will begin conducting business on Tuesday, and Inside Football has your official Transition Timeline.

The New York Giants will report to training camp on Friday and the New York Jets on Saturday. Teams are allowed to begin training camp 15 days prior to their preseason opening games.

NFL teams can begin signing drafted and undrafted rookies at 10 p.m. ET on Tuesday. They can also begin negotiating with their own unrestricted free agents, even though they can't sign them until Friday, July 29 at 6 p.m. ET.

The CBA will be official when it is ratified by at least 50 percent of the league's players -- something that seems like a formality at this point.

Finally, back to football. And a crazy week ahead.
