The CBA now sits in the hands of money hungry lawyers and other people with pockets full of power. But even with the NFL's future so uncertain, many of the leagues players are still left without a team ahead of the 2011 season.
Meetings are set to commence sometime today in relation to the league's future, although the mutual thought shared between experts and fans is that the NFL will come off second best in the grand scheme of things.
To add a pinch of salt into the recipe, the financial situation of America's number one sport is also affecting the minds of many owners. Teams have taken a hesitant stance on performing free agent transactions until a new agreement is reached, as the fear of wasting money has swept over all 32 franchises with a lockout looming.
Of course, April's draft also throws a wrench in the works.
But until that very situation plays out in front of us, fans seem to be taking a humble approach toward a year without football and instead continue to engage in player speculation this offseason.
Now, it's time to play matchmaker and take a look at who may potentially find a new home.
