NFL Lockout News: CBA Proposal To Be Presented To Players?

I know it seems that each day I post something that shows a little more optimism without any tangible progress in the labor negotiations that the NFL is having, but there is still a lockout going on. We know that talks were broken off for the holiday weekend, but there may be reason to get hopes up...maybe. 

SI.com writer Jim Trotter tweeted some information that I could not find elsewhere, but it is definitely something to pass along.

Since it is written as a question, I am not exactly sure how to read this, but considering he put it out there, I imagine he has some sort of source. What does this mean? It could mean that on Tuesday the players will be presented the offer and will put it to a vote. It could be accepted or rejected. Ideally, the owners would not try some cheap offer to try and get a desperation acceptance.

Trotter asks for temperance and rejects overreaction in this tweet:

My belief: No1 should overreact. Smith must put it to a vote of the players, who might not like what they see. Or maybe they will. Patience.less than a minute ago via Twidroyd for Android Favorite Retweet Reply

 

So yes, I know, it is another somewhat meaningless lockout post. But since it is out there, it should be on here.
