The NFL lockout may be over but players aren't taking anyone's patience for granted.

A group of 13 players, including San Diego Chargers Linebacker Takeo Spikes thanked fans in a video posted to NFLLockout.com.

"We know it's been a long, hard, waited-out process but in the end we all got what we wanted, which is football," Spikes said in the video.
