    That's funny, I heard it was the 17th........ ;)

    July 17 emerges as target for the announcement of a deal
    Posted by Mike Florio on July 12, 2011, 3:39 PM EDT


    We’ve got no interest in breaking the news that a new labor deal has been finalized. When it happens, plenty of people will have it within minutes, and within minutes after that it will be officially announced.

    But keeping with our mission of sharing with PFT Planet the things we’re hearing from our network of sources, we’re hearing that an agreement in principle, subject to league and court approval, currently is expected to be announced on July 17.

    Whether a new deal is announced on July 17 is a separate question. The story for now is that July 17 has emerged as the potential target.

    Can you imagine the CHAOS that will ensue after it is signed? Teams will have 1 week to re-sign their own players, as well as free agents, as well as the rookies they drafted, as well as the undrafted rookies, as well as make any trades if they hope to get these players in on time for a shotgun pre-season.

    I can't ****** wait, its going to be a blast to watch.

    Not many other ways to define stampede once the CBA is done. Think I'll be listening to Sirius NFL Radio 24/7 during that time.

    Actually based on a timeline they showed on NFL Live on ESPN yesterday, part of the week between when the CBA was signed and when free agency actually began included a 2-3 day buffer period in which teams are able to re-sign their own free agents. Now granted, there are guys like Weddle who will obviously want to see what the market offers, but for someone like Burnett it could give us a leg up on the competition.

    they might have to bite the bullet and cancel a game just to keep something akin to sanity in training camps and the future season

    The Hall of Fame game is the most likely casualty...... just doesn't seem realistic at this point.
