Judge denies NFL’s request for stay

U.S. District Judge Susan Richard Nelson denied the NFL’s request for a stay of her decision to lift the owners’ lockout of the players. The owners will take their case to the 8th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, but the league’s doors appear open for business without a collective bargaining agreement in place.

With no CBA, there is no salary cap and it could be open season with uninhibited spending in free agency.
