NFL players agreed to vote OK to a final deal yesterday, finally putting an end to the 4 and a half month lockout, the longest stoppage of work in the league’s history.

“This is a long time coming, and football’s back,” NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell said, “and that’s the great news for everybody.”

News of the official end of the NFL lockout comes just days after team owners approved to a tentative agreement.

Meanwhile, the NBA’s lockout is just getting started!
