With no new collective bargaining agreement in place, it is very likely that the Bears and Rams will move back the start of their training camp. Because of that, the Hall of Fame game between the two teams is looking less than likely to occur.
“The decision is probably going to be made for us,” a coach from one of the teams told Jason Cole of Yahoo Sports. “You get past a certain point and you can’t play that game … the way things are going right now, I don’t think we’re going to have the time to travel for an extra game, let alone all the other stuff you’re talking about.”
League spokesman Greg Aiello said Monday that no decision has been made on the game. Likewise, Hall of Fame spokesman Joe Horrigan said no decision has been made by his organization. However, Horrigan said there is no way to change the date of the enshrinement festivities.
