Q: What brought this potential lockout about?

A: Two years ago, NFL owners opted out of the current collective bargaining agreement, effective after the 2010 season. If they don't get a new deal done by the end of the league year, the owners can choose to lock out the players with no pay or benefits until the players agree to a different deal

The union decertified Friday at 5 p.m. And although the league made no official announcement, a source told the Daily News late Friday night that the NFL had locked out the players, which had been the plan all along if a new collective bargaining agreement could not be reached. The lockout began at midnight Friday night, one minute after the CBA expired.
