NFL, referees reach agreement

Posted: Updated:

(CBS) - The NFL and the Union representing the referees have reached an agreement to end the lockout.

The deal means the regular refs will be back on the field for this weekend's games, beginning with tonight's game between the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Ravens. The lockout of the refs hit a critical mass after a blown call Monday night caused Green Bay to lose to Seattle.

The call made national headlines and became the catalyst for serious negotiations between the Union and the league.
