NFL Lockout Lifted? Just Kidding

Earlier this week, the NFL lockout was lifted and teams were getting ready to move forward with OTAs starting next week. Players were starting to travel back to their teams in preparation for the impending workouts, and finally it looked like actual football talk was going to begin. Then the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals granted the NFL's request for a temporary stay on Friday, and the NFL immediately reinstated the lockout.

The NFL didn't have to wait that long to resume the lockout, and the announcement came right after the third round of the NFL draft had ended.

Teams "have been told that the prior lockout rules are reinstated effective immediately," NFL spokesman Greg Aiello told The Associated Press.

The NFL will now request a permanent stay that would keep the lockout in effect for the duration of its appeal of Susan Richard Nelson's original ruling. The appeal process could take six to eight weeks, so let's hope the permanent stay is denied. If it is approved, it could be a while until OTAs and player movement can happen.
