NFL Lockout: Players Reportedly Reject Proposed CBA, Chaos Ensues

The lockout just keeps getting messier and messier. On the night targeted by the league to end the longest work stoppage in NFL history, it appears that the owners and players aren't as close as we thought.

According to a USA Today report, the players have rejected the proposed CBA that the owners nearly unanimously approved (31 votes yea, zero nay, one abstaining). However, that report has not been confirmed.

However, a report has also surfaced that the players have not yet rejected the proposed CBA, but will instead push off their vote this evening in order to take a deeper look at the new deal on the table.

Per @Jay_Glazer, "the players will NOT vote" tonight. They want to see what changes the owners may have made to the proposal.less than a minute ago via TweetDeck Favorite Retweet Reply
