NFL Lockout: Patriots' Tom Brady Says 'It Is Time' To End Lockout

Tom Brady, like all of the fans, has had enough of the NFL Lockout. Brady, who's name is on the lawsuit against the NFL, spoke out along with fellow quarterbacks Peyton Manning and Drew Brees in a statement released Wednesday, urging the owners to bring the lockout to a close.

"We believe the overall proposal made by the players is fair for both sides and it is time to get this deal done," the QBs said, adding: "This is the time of year we as players turn our attention to the game on the field. We hope the owners feel the same way." (via WEEI)

Brees spoke with a radio station Wednesday, offering hope that the lockout is almost over.

"We're very close to a settlement," Brees said on XX Sports Radio in San Diego. "We're at that point in the negotiations where there's just a few more details that need to be ironed out." (via SB Nation)
