 Word is in that the end of the lockout is near. The owners have voted to put a conditional end to the lockout. 31 voted to end the lockout while only the Raiders abstained on July 21st, 2011. Now the true end to the lockout is pending the approval of the players as well as the reformation of the NFLPA (NFL Players Association) and some general legal work. The plan they laid out should have the players back into their facilities on Saturday, July 23nd, 2011. On that day teams will be able to begin resigning or waiving their own free agents and rookies. On Wednesday the league year will officially start and all of free agency will open. This is when things will start to get shaken up, if you already drafted your fantasy football team this will affect you the most. Below is a list of all 2011 free agents who could have an impact on your 2011 fantasy football season so keep an eye on who signs them.
