Well, isn't this just peachy. It appears the NFL will not even be attempting to resolve its differences this summer.
That's the Blob's conclusion, anyway, upon reading this.
Maybe this is just the league keeping all its ducks in a row, just in case talks either never resume, don't resume in time or break down at the 11th hour. But my Skept-O-Meter immediately red-lines when plans are already in motion for an 8-game NFL season beginning in late November.
Sounds less like a contingency plan than a plan to keep this stalemate going as long as it takes to me. Just sayin'.
