So sayeth Daniel Kaplan of Sports Business Journal via The Twitter.
Told optimism is so high in NFL, players talks over labor deal that expectation is for a framework agreement in about two weeks
We are approaching 90 days since the lockout officially got underway, and right around seven weeks away from when Training Camp is supposed to get underway. The sooner that this gets done, the better it would be for teams like Minnesota. The Vikings, as I mentioned yesterday, are entitled to an extra mini-camp due to Leslie Frazier's status as a new head coach, and if something were to get settled within two weeks, they would have time to get those camps in. That would allow them to start getting the offense installed and work in any free agents that they might be interested in bringing in.
Optimism has been building on the NFL Labor front for quite a while now, and hopefully it's well-founded. I don't know how much longer I can hold up with no football.
