After many long months of talks, rumors, hesitation, and excitement, the owners and the NFLPA have agreed to a new collective bargaining agreement, formally ending the NFL Lockout. Starting the week of July 25, teams can now negotiate with all free agents & draft picks, make trades, and most importantly, start training camp.
The Green Bay Packers can now start planning on repeating as Super Bowl champions. In the world of the NFL, it is very difficult to win the Super Bowl in back-to-back years. The Pittsburgh Steelers, Indianapolis Colts, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, Chicago Bears, Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, & New York Jets are all teams who can win this season.
Where will the top free agents go in 2011? Can we see players like Nnamdi Asomugha, Santonio Holmes, Sidney Rice, DeAngelo Williams, Braylon Edwards all find new homes this season? It will be a very busy week and time will only tell.
Sports Traveler is selling NFL Travel Packages for all games this season. Rather it's seeing the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, watching Peyton Manning make another ridiculous play, or sitting at Lambeau Field in January, Sports Traveler can make it happen.
