The NFLPA announced on Monday morning a conference call with its executive committee and 32 player representatives that will take place at 11 a.m. ET on Monday.

The NFLPA player representatives will then vote on approving the deal that the two sides negotiated, a source confirmed to CBSSports.com.

This fits with the timeline previously reported by CBSSports.com's Mike Freeman, and means that we should expect to -- barring a last-minute change of heart by the executive committee -- be prepared for the beginning of the NFL offseason as shortly as the end of today.

Per Albert Breer of the NFL Network, the players are on the conference call right now "reviewing [the] summary of the deal" -- remember that, just as with last week, there are still a LOT of players that aren't completely in-tune with every single detail of the CBA. (This is simply what happens when you have 1,900 players who need to be informed; kudos to the NFLPA for getting more players to the point of understanding what's going on.)

So it's likely that issues are being explained in detail to the players rep so they can then explain said issues to their constituents.

 Fingers crossed. I'm a Cubs fan for the love of God. I need this!

I'm a Lions fan but would still love to watch some football for 4 months and a bit.   I think the Lions MIGHT ( fingers crossed) have the best year they've had in a long long time this season if there is one.  Give us a healthy Stafford and Javid Best and a great Dline and MAYBE.. JUST MAYBE we can do well for once.........

True. Nothing is official yet, but we should know very soon. They're either voting now or have already voted, and no player vote has ever failed to pass after being cleared by the player reps. Fingers crossed. I'm a Cubs fan for the love of God. I need this!

Are you ready for some football? I can't wait to talk about teams and players instead of lawyers, union recertification and bargaining agreements. And there sure will be a lot to talk about.

I'll believe it when it's official but right now I'm still afraid of the players voting no to the new CBA......  I can't get rid of this bad feeling I have..... please let me be wrong.
