Jeremy Shockey: Players Told Lockout Will End Thursday, Camp Begins Friday
Jeremy Shockey has provided us with the best news possible. The tight end told Busted Coverage in an interview that the lockout will end Thursday, and that players have been told to report to camp on Friday. From his phone conversation with BC:
“The deal will be done Thursday and we’re being told to report to Charlotte for a three-day camp the 22nd through 25th. Obviously the details have to be completed, but this deal is done. The Hall of Fame game is a go. It’s a win-win for both sides.”
Shockey’s words coincide with what we’ve been hearing all weekend, but it sure is a huge relief to hear it from a player. They may have some details to work out, but it looks like things are almost set. Now all we have to do is start preparing for the actual season again. Who even knew Shockey had signed with the Panthers???
