Woody Johnson Statement on CBA

Earlier tonight owners voted to accept a new CBA proposal. The Raiders abstained from voting. Every other team voted to accept. Jets owner Woody Johnson said the following in a statement released through the team's website:

Woody Johnson, the New York Jets’ chairman & CEO, issued a statement through the team tonight on the NFL owners’ ratification earlier in the evening of the new Collective Bargaining Agreement.

"Thanks to Roger, DeMaurice, the members of the CEC, the players and all those who worked so hard to help us get to this point," Johnson said. "The clubs have ratified a 10-year agreement that is both comprehensive and fair. I am confident that we will be back on the field soon and that we have put a framework in place that will make the game better in the long run."

Now we all play the waiting game. Will the players act to end the lockout?
