It seemed kind of fitting that after months of strife between the players and owners during the NFL lockout, two key figures in the negotiations — Colts center Jeff Saturday and Patriots owner Robert Kraft — shared an embrace on Monday during the announcement of the new collective bargaining agreement.
The hug was given by Saturday to Kraft as both a sign of respect — he called Kraft “a man who helped us save football” — and also as a sympathetic gesture, for Kraft’s wife Myra passed away last week.
