Good Morning Giants fans, it's time to take a look at the stories making headlines around the NFL, so let's get to it:

The NFL is having their winter meetings down here in very rainy Fort Lauderdale, and here are some of the things that have happened so far:

  • Comcast and the NFL have reached a carriage agreement on the NFL Network.
  • Super Bowl XLVII will be played in New Orleans in 2013.
  • The NFL extended its deals with Fox and CBS through the end of the 2013 season. The deal assures the NFL will have money coming in even if there is a work stoppage in 2011.
  • No vote was taken on extending the regular season, and Commish Goodell said he does not expect that vote to take place this week.
  • Talks on a new collective bargaining agreement between the NFL and the players' union are expected to begin next month, both sides looking to avoid the aforementioned 2011 work stoppage.

Ok, in other news from around the league:

Have a safe holiday weekend, and remember to thank a Vet!
