NFL lockout almost finished; Jets schedule on Tap

By Marc A. Greenberg

With negotiations apparently wrapping up today, the NFL and its players union are expected to complete an agreement in principle this week, according to people in the know.

Reps from both sides left negotiation meetings on Friday with a deal in place and will meet Tuesday with the court-appointed mediator, Chief Magistrate Judge Arthur J. Boylan. The owners will meet Thursday in Atlanta to hopefully ratify the deal.

With players on the verge of getting back in the swing of things, let’s take a quick look at the New York Jets schedule to get our mouths watering for some football.  In the upcoming days we will break down the schedule, including the tough traveling the Jets will face during a rough road trip.
