With one $760 million transaction on the docket for today’s ownership meetings in Dallas, several other even bigger deals also will be the subject of a vote by all owners.

John Ourand of SportsBusiness Journal reports that the owners will vote on new TV deals with NBC, FOX, and CBS.  Ourand reports that the owners will approve the new deals.

Ourand also reports that the contracts will each pay more than $1 billion per year, and that an announcement will come later today.

Stay tuned.  (That line finally works on more than one level.)

    With the NFL being the 800 pound gorilla in the room, the networks will pass this costs to cable, dtv and dish and our bills will go way up to pay for this.

    Any chance we fans can get to watch any game we want without having to get the worthless dish?
    I find it hard to believe the ratings wouldn’t go up if you could watch any game you want. Instead of being stuck with the chiefs every week (in the area I am in).
