Looking at lockout effects for all 32 teams

Today is April 6th, and it is a big day in the NFL. Today is the day the injunction hearing in front of Judge Susan Nelson in Minnesota commences, so we should finally get some news related to this labor strife in the coming days. Granted, we won’t get a resolution, but we’ll get news as soon as this week.
