The Rams are scheduled to kick off its training camp at the end of the week, July 22, but will the NFL and the players’ union have a deal done in time for training camp? That is the BIG question. I, for one, am not too optimistic the negotiation will be done with in time.
What implications will this have? Well training camp will not be held as scheduled so that also affects the Aug. 7 Hall of Fame game between the Rams and the Chicago Bears.
I do not think the players will mind losing the first preseason game. In fact, I do not think the players mind getting rid of two, if not all, of the preseason games.
All I’m hoping for is for this damn season to get started so we can talk actual football!!
On a side note, the NFL website has a interesting article about All-Everything RB Steven Jackson. Jackson speaks about missing the player workouts. Jackson downplayed the importance of his attendance, or lack thereof, and I basically agree with everything he said. Click here if you would like to read more.
