I believe it when I see it


Mike Freeman of CBSSports.com, via Pro Football Talk, reports that a new collective bargaining agreement between NFL owners and the NFLPA could come in days.

Simply, I will believe it when I see it.

Just because the two sides are close doesn’t mean anything. The pair looked like to be heading towards some kind of agreement back in March when the pair were in negotiations, but things broke down.

Freeman reports that 80-85 percent of the next labor deal has been negotiated. That means there are still issues that could prove to be sticking points. Nor, does it mean that the two have addressed the main issue of splitting the $9 billion in revenue.

In the end, hopefully things keep going well, because summer is getting really boring.
