Indianapolis Colts owner Jim Irsay believes it would be tough to have a normal preseason and start to the regular season if a new collective bargaining agreement is not hammered out by early July. "There's a window where we can get something done, but we really need to get something done by the Fourth of July or thereabouts so we can get in and have training camp and preseason and get ready that way," Irsay said. "There has to be some real urgency to get this thing resolved and really have a full season with a training camp and preseason games."
