Report: NFL Players, Owners Clear Major Hurdle, Agree on ‘Economics of Deal’

With the NFL seemingly nearing the end of its lockout this weekend, the players and owners are making significant progress on agreeing on a new deal.

The two sides have agreed on the "economics of a deal," according to NFL Network's Albert Breer.

"Outside of some ancillary details, the economics of a deal between the players and owners are done," Breer reported via Twitter. "There are still plenty of other hoops for the sides to jump through, and important issues like the Legacy Fund, player safety left to cover. But getting the finances to the right place is, of course, a pretty big deal. It seems they've done that."
