EAST RUTHERFORD - Now that the lockout has ended, football fans around the Garden State are gearing up for some football.
It's business as usual for the NFL today after players voted yesterday to approve a 10-year labor agreement that ends the 4 1/2-month labor dispute.
Club facilities will open today, and general managers will be able to sign 2011 draft picks and rookie free agents. Teams can begin talking to veteran free agents, and training camps for some teams may begin as soon as tomorrow.
The New York Giants will open training camp Friday at their team headquarters near New Meadowlands Stadium. The team opted to train at home this year because of the uncertainty surrounding the labor dispute.
