FILE - In this Sept. 24, 2012, file photo, an official, rear center, signals for a touchdown by Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Golden Tate, obscured, as another official, at right, signals a touchback on the controversial last play of an NFL football game against the Green Bay Packers in Seattle. The Seahawks won 14-12. The NFL and the referees' union have reached a tentative contract agreement on Wednesday, Sept. 26, ending an impasse that began in June when the league locked out the officials and used replacements instead.
