Denver Broncos Tweet The End Of The Long NFL Lockout

Today marked the end of the longest NFL lockout in history, prompting much relief from fans and (judging by their tweets), players alike.

NFLPA head DeMaurice Smith said that a "fair and balanced" deal was finally reached, and now it's back to football. The turf at the Broncos' practice field is marked to perfection and play-books line the coach's hallway, according to the Bronco's web team.

Many Broncos were all 'aTwitter' at the news and began packing right away for preliminary practice in Dove Valley beginning tomorrow.
