It's official: NFL players ratify deal

Washington, D.C. - NFL Players Association spokesman George Atallah said on his Twitter account that all 32 player representatives have voted in favor of a new 10-year collective bargaining agreement that will effectively end the NFL lockout after more than four months. 

Earlier this morning, the NFLPA's executive committee met to discuss the proposal. It was expected that the committee would recommend approval of the deal to the player reps. 

Later this afternoon, there will be a press conference to announce the deal. NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith and NFL commissioner Roger Goodell are expected to appear at a joint news conference at NFLPA headquarters in Washington.
