Around the web: Will there be Pro Football in 2011?

Now that the Green Bay Packers have defeated the Pittsburgh Steelers in Super Bowl XLV, the offseason has officially started -- and it could be a long offseason.

With the League's current Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) running out in March, there could be a lockout in 2011 if the players and owners cannot come to an agreement.

There would still be a draft however, and the Broncos are busy preparing for it. Click here for our first Mock Draft, Little Big Board and a few scouting reports.

Putting aside the CBA for a moment, Denver Broncos wide receiver Eddie Royal is excited for 2011; "I know we had a tough season but plenty of teams have had major turn arounds in one year and ended up [then] winning the Super Bowl... and that is our ONLY goal for next season."

Eddie raises a good point, as did Micah Pexa on our Facebook page yesterday; "The last time the Packers won a Super Bowl, the Broncos won it the very next year!"

The only problem is, there may not be football in 2011. However, there will be in 2012, and the Denver Broncos want to be in Orange by then. We have been hammering for the Broncos to officially announce the switch, but as of now, they haven't made anything official.

That's not all we've been hammering for either. There are many former Denver Bronco players that have gotten little consideration for the Pro Football Hall Of Fame, even though there are many that are very deserving. To help raise awareness about those players and learn what you can do to help get them into Canton, we've started a website, Get Them in The Hall. It is still under construction but be sure to check it out!

On a final note, congrats to Shannon Sharpe for finally being elected to the Pro Football Hall Of Fame!
