After over a month of tense negotiations, NFL "PR Guy" Brian McCarthy just Tweeted that the NFL and Comcast have reached a long-term carriage agreement to carry the NFL Network.

No details have been released yet regarding the agreement, but it's good news to fans who look to that channel for their "football fix". 

UDPATE: The Boston Herald reports that Tuesday's agreement will keep the NFL-owned channel out of Comcast’s premium sports tier of programming, and as a result will now reach 10-million more homes.  The NFL said Comcast will begin repositioning NFL Network to its digital classic level of service and have a full launch by August 1.
