Owners and players continued to meet and negotiate over the weekend attempting to finalize details for a new collective bargaining agreement for the National Football League. Major breakthroughs were made early in the weekend and a deal could be struck this week. A few unresolved issues including $320-million-dollars in lost benefits to the players and limitations on the use of the franchise tag still loom for the sides to work out. With many training camps set to open later this week, the two parties are putting in extra work and meeting again today to complete a deal. The Rams are set to open the preseason on August 7th with the Hall of Fame Game against the Chicago Bears from Canton, Ohio.
