NFL labor: Owners OK deal, players don't vote yet

COLLEGE PARK, Ga. (AP) -- A person familiar with the negotiations tells The Associated Press that players didn't vote Thursday on a tentative agreement to end the NFL lockout because they had not seen the full proposal approved by owners.

The person spoke on condition of anonymity because the process is supposed to be secret.

Owners overwhelmingly voted for a tentative agreement earlier Thursday, pending an OK from the players, who later held a conference call to discuss the proposal. That call ended without a vote.

Before the call began, NFL Players Association head DeMaurice Smith wrote in an email to the 32 team representatives: "There is no agreement between the NFL and the players at this time."
