(CBS) NFL fans yearning to have some actual football news to and discuss could soon have their wish. According to a report by Houston’s SportsRadio 610, the NFL will initiate a 12-day plan to resume football activities beginning Saturday at midnight.
Citing league sources, the radio station claims that “barring an 11th-Hour collapse in negotiations” a new collective bargaining agreement will be ratified this week. Once the new CBA is ratified, the plan will be carried out in three parts: The first four days will only be focused on signing restricted free agents, the second four days will focus on unrestricted free agent veterans, and the final four days will be devoted to signing drafted and undrafted players.
If the league does in fact carry out the reported plan, training camps could start on July 27, leaving only the Bears and Rams with altered preseason camps.
