After a contentious five months, the NFL lockout is over.
The players approved the deal ratified unanimously by owners, so players will soon get back on the field to prepare for the 2011 season.
Jaguars owner Wayne Weaver expressed his gratitude to the fans yesterday.
He says neither the players nor the owners got everything they were looking for, but the new deal is one that works for everyone.
Furthermore, he days the new deal will allow the Jaguars to field a team that can field a team that can contend for the postseason every year.
Despite being the longest work stoppage in NFL history, only one game was cancelled -- the Hall if Fame Game in Canton, Ohio -- and that game doesn't count in the standings.
The new deal ensures labor peace for the next ten years.
