ATLANTA -- NFL owners have approved a labor agreement, potentially paving the way to end the league's lockout.

Players still have to OK the deal, but according to various reports they should be on track to do so tonight.

If both sides vote yes, players could begin reporting to team facilities within days, and while the exact timetable for practices, trades and free agency is not yet clear, they should all arrive fairly soon -- allowing for a Kevin Kolb trade (if the Eagles get an offer they like) and most likely training camp at Lehigh.

We'll have more details on the deal and what it means for the Eagles soon.
