Finally the NFL Lockout is over! Well kind of.
Judge Nelson ruled in favor of the players ending the lockout that lasted almost two months. However, the NFL has filed an appeal, which means the process is going to drag out. The league thinks Judge Nelson was out of her jurisdiction, and they want her to freeze her ruling to let the appeals process pan out.
So basically it's not really over. But in this short window of time, the players have a chance to meet with coaches at their facilities and figure things out. I have heard that the owners have said that players can show up, but they won't be doing anything.
I highly doubt that a new head coach isn't going to give his playbook to the team. That's just my opinion, so we will see what happens when teams actually meet up today.
Players still can't be traded, but that doesn't mean phone calls aren't being made to try and work something out just in case the players can be dealt. The only trades right now are those that will be made during the draft.
Which teams will trade up and down throughout the first round? Several teams need a quarterback, which means they could be sneaking back into round one to snag up a QB.
Stay tuned as I update you throughout the day with all the latest news.
