08:01 AM ET 07.21 | Who knows, by the time you read this, things may have changed, but could the lockout have been settled just a little bit earlier? Logan Mankins and Vincent Jackson [as of 8:59 p.m. EDT Wednesday] are still asking for cash compensation and that is one of the holdups over the finalizing of the CBA agreement, a source with knowledge of the situation told me. Mankins and Jackson are still asking for $10 million each and this is slowing the process, the source explained. Jackson has denied he is seeking compensation. And just to be clear: Mankins and Jackson are not themselves asking for the money. Lawyers representing them are.

Yes, we have suffered enough through this lockout.

One other thing affecting the negotiations overall - Patriots owner Bob Kraft's wife passed away yesterday. It was cancer, so everyone knew it was coming, but it's certainly taken Bob Kraft out of the picture for a while. Since he's one of the key players in both the CBA talks and any discussions with Mankins, this could delay the whole thing.

By all accounts, Myra Kraft was a fine and generous woman, who grew to appreciate and love the game of football. RIP, Mrs. Patriot.

If they don't settle this debt limit thing, watch comodoties futures soar as the dollar drops in value. That blue lint might be a pretty good investment.
