NFL Owners Vote for Tentative Deal

Staff Report
The Associated Press

COLLEGE PARK, GEORGIA - NFL owners have voted in favor of a tentative agreement to end the lockout, pending player approval.

Thursday's ratification came after a full day of meetings at an Atlanta-area hotel, where team executives pored over the terms of the deal.

Players still have to sign off on the deal. They didn't vote on a full pact Wednesday because there were issues that had not been resolved. They plan to have a conference call later Thursday.

The four-month lockout is the NFL's first work stoppage since 1987.
