NFL Lockout: Players, Owner Reach 'Economics' Of New CBA

There may be light at the end of the tunnel for the NFL Lockout if new reports are accurate. According to the NFL Network's Albert Breer, the owners and players have established the "economics" of a new collective bargaining agreement. On Thursday night, a rookie pay scale had been reached, previously a tough negotiating point for both sides.

Reportedly, the owners made serious concessions earlier when the players made threats, though now word has come out on what specifically they might have been. Certainly it appears that both sides are anxious to get a deal done before they do too much long-term harm to the game.

Breer also points out that a "legacy fund" to aid retirees still needs to be worked out, as well as player safety concerns. Some reports also have the salary cap being established at $120 million with exceptions and such for up to $130 million.

Football looks to be back closer than ever since March.
