Lockout Likely to End in a Week

Mark Maske of the Washington Post is reporting that sources are expecting a new CBA to be agreed upon in principle between this Friday and next Tuesday.

“The league responded by issuing a statement that said: “We share the view that now is the time to reach an agreement so we can all get back to football and a full 2011 season. We are working hard with the players’ negotiating team every day to complete an agreement as soon as possible.”

Several people not involved in the negotiations but familiar with them said they did not expect a handshake deal to be completed Wednesday. But they said an an agreement in principle was possible in coming days.”
