NFL Lockout: Steelers Could Start Training Camp On Time If Lockout Is Resolved By July 20

Scott Brown tweets that the Steelers could begin camp on time (July 30) if the NFL Lockout is resolved by July 20:

Hearing that the drop dead date for camp starting on time at st vincent, per new labor deal, may be as late as July 20.

Mark Maske of the Washington Post, meanwhile, indicates that the lockout could – emphasis on could – be resolved within about a week.

Talks would extend into the weekend if there’s enough progress Thursday and Friday. A handshake deal by early next week could be possible. ESPN.com reports that the two sides are unlikely to come to an agreement this week, which means that beginning next week, the two sides will have a target of about a week to get a deal done if training camps, or at least the Steelers’ training camp, are to begin on time.

These next couple weeks, then, will determine whether camps open on time and whether the NFL is able to play their full-season schedule.
