Good morning everybody! This will be a very exciting week for me, as I am going to Las Vegas for the first time!! But I digress. Lets get into it.
The big news this morning was the fact that the league hopes the owners ratify a new deal in a meeting in Atlanta on July 21. If this happens, training camps will be able to begin on time – except the Rams’ July 22 camp – and every preseason game, with the exception of the Hall of Fame game (which also affects the Rams).
That is great news. But the thing I am most excited for is the start of Free Agency. A Yahoo Sports article states that the league has a document called The Transition Rules, which outline key dates for the start of the season. Under these “rules”, Free Agency begins July 28. I will be circling that day on my calendar, as I want to see what the Rams’ brass does to improve the team.
