Where We Are Now With the NFL

The players’ union decertified Friday, March 11, 2011 around 4PM

The NFL owners began a lockout at midnight (no trades, signings, contact with players etc.).

The union has already filed a request for an injunction to block the lockout with U.S. District Court Judge David Doty. If Doty grants the injunction, the NFL will appeal the ruling, but the league year, with free agency and trades, could begin while the court process continues- not until a week or so at least.

If Doty rules the lockout is legal, there would be no NFL offseason (or potentially regular season) until both sides reach agreement.
