'Bloody Thursday' in the NFL
NFL fans, brace yourselves. Word is that the owners and players association have failed to get a new collective bargaining agreement in place. Although they have until midnight tonight, both sides have left the table. What happens next will be shocking. Teams are required to be in compliance with the salary cap by business day's end Thursday. Assuming that there would be considerable relief with a new CBA, many NFL teams allowed themselves to be right up against the cap and many miles beyond the cap. In what sports writers are calling 'Bloody Thursday' both the quantity and quality of players that have to be cut tomorrow from team rosters should be staggering. Watch to see if your favorite players wind up on the open market tomorrow.
