Seeking answers to labor questions

By Mike Sando

Life in the NFC West and the NFL in general would change dramatically if a judge's decision to end the lockout results in free agency before the draft.

The league says it will seek from the courts a stay keeping the lockout in place pending an appeal. In the meantime, the decision produces more questions than answers:
We're accustomed to seeking direction from the league on such matters, but the with attorneys and the courts involved, answers could come elsewhere. More to come.

Earlier: Would the lockout end immediately?

Update: League executive Greg Aiello tells Andrew Brandt the league will wait for a response on its stay request before opening the league for business.
