After four-and-a-half months, the NFL lockout has finally ended, without cutting into the regular season at all. It was a nail-biting few months for hardcore Jets and Giants fans as well as New York sports bar owners, whose livelihood depends on Monday night and Sunday afternoon games.

Here at JD Pro, as sports fans ourselves, we couldn’t be happier that the NFL Players Association and the league’s owners reached an agreement. According to sources, Monday’s vote of the NFLPA is a mere formality. No Collective Bargaining Agreement has ever been turned down by the players when leadership approved it.

Once the players officially ratify the deal, training camp and free agency are likely to start on the same day.

Yes, football is back.
