The long, ultimately painful day of NFL labor news is not over yet.

The NFL is expected to make an announcement soon before the league year officially ends at midnight, according to Daniel Kaplan of Sports Business Journal. The expectation is that a lockout will be imposed by the owners, although a “curveball” is always possible.

It’s also possible a lockout won’t even be the final turn of events for the night. As Florio pointed out earlier, the players could attempt to block a lockout quickly.

Get ready for a lot of NFL developments that anyone without a law degree won’t really understand.
