Green Bay, WI (WHBL-Learfield) - The N-F-L owners’ lockout could resume today. Federal Judge Susan Nelson ruled on Monday that the lockout is illegal and today  the owners will ask her to keep it in place while they appeal her ruling to a higher court. Green Bay Packers’ president Mark Murphy says there would be quote, “a lot of chaos” if the lockout is not re-imposed. Free agents could shop around immediately, as front offices focus on tomorrow night’s draft. Agents started calling teams yesterday to get negotiations started. But most of those efforts didn’t get anywhere, because the N-F-L urged its teams not to budge until the appeal of Nelson’s ruling is completed. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said one Packers’ free agent was told that no contracts are being done for now. League attorney Jeff Pash said there are too many uncertainties for the N-F-L to resume business-as-usual. Meanwhile, several dozen players showed up at team facilities yesterday to try and work out and collect their off-season bonuses – and they were turned away. Murphy said none of the Green Bay players showed up at Lambeau. Only a handful had been in town anyway.
