NFL owners meet: ‘We’re not the owners, we’re the players’

  • August 27, 2021

The NFL owners met Wednesday night for their annual meeting in Philadelphia and announced they have reached a deal that will end a four-day lockout and begin a new era of football.

The league announced the agreement after the meetings concluded.

The NFL’s owners, who will vote on the deal, have been under pressure to reach a deal.

They have had no choice, they have said.

The lockout has kept teams away from home games and forced them to play games in arenas they’ve been unable to sell out for months.

The deal will put a permanent end to the games.
