A spokesman for the National Football League says it looks like it's "going to be a good day."
According to people familiar with the negotiations, owners and players agreed early today to the terms of a deal to end the lockout that began in March. Players are expected to begin the voting process later today.
Owners overwhelmingly approved a proposal last week, but some unresolved issues still needed to be figured out to satisfy players.
A source says the sides worked through the weekend, finally finishing the deal this morning.
The league's old labor deal expired in March, and the owners locked out the players, the NFL's first work stoppage since 1987.
