NFL Lockout Target Date Is July 15...Or July 17...Or July 21

Depending on who you ask, the target date to end the NFL lockout and start the 2011 NFL season is either July 15, 17 or 21. All three dates have been thrown about in recent weeks as possible deadlines to get a deal done.

Within the last few weeks, July 15 has been the most popular "deadline" for the NFL lockout. It's said that the two sides need to come to a labor agreement by then or else the Rams and Bears are in danger of not only starting training camp on time, but also playing the Hall of Fame game on Aug. 7.

This week ESPN came out with a report that everyone's been citing that says July 21 is the target date to get a deal done. That would cause only minor delays in the start of training camp and free agency could be hitting seven days later.

Now the latest target date for the NFL lockout is July 17, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk.

Sit tight...it should only be a couple of more days (or hours) before we have the latest target date.
