AP Sources: NFL, Players Have Agreed to Deal

WASHINGTON - Two people familiar with the negotiations tell The Associated Press that the NFL and players have reached a deal
to end the lockout.

The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the process
is supposed to remain secret and no formal announcement has been
made.

The NFL Players Association's executive committee is meeting Monday and is expected to begin the voting process. Owners overwhelmingly approved a proposal last week, but some unresolved
issues still needed to be figured out to satisfy players.

The sides worked through the weekend, finally finishing the deal
Monday morning, one of the people told the AP.

The league's old labor deal expired in March, and the owners locked out the players, the NFL's first work stoppage since 1987.
