Per Shefter's tweet above, the NFL has advised teams to prepare for a lengthy NFL owner's meeting, scheduled for next Tuesday, June 21, in Chicago.

Speculation abounds that this could mean the owners are preparing to vote on the terms of a new Collective Bargaining Agreement, which they may be hammering out right now in their not-so-secret-anymore meetings. Approval from at least 24 of the 32 NFL owners is needed for passage of a new CBA.

Most reports are giving this news a positive spin, and right now, that's just what we want to hear. Because today, I want to think happy thoughts. I'll save the negative stuff for later.
