NFL owners and team executives are meeting in Chicago this week to discuss the status of the negotiations with the players. There has been some optimism coming out of those meetings so ideally we're writing about a new CBA soon.

But if that's not the case, and the lockout continues to linger for weeks or even months, will we see more Kansas City Chiefs player-only practices?

"I'm sure there will be," Chiefs QB Matt Cassel told me in a phone interview last week.

Cassel, who is ready for the lockout to end like the rest of us, says the length of the lockout will determine whether we're lining up along the fence at Bishop Miege High School again watching a player-only practice.

"If [the lockout] continues to progress like the way we hope it doesn't, but if it does, we'll hopefully get another one of these sessions in within the next month," he said.

The good news is that, as of now, it sounds like Cassel probably won't have to be organizing another set of practices. Not much is being made public in regards to the discussions between the players and owners, but people are privately expressing optimism that something could be done as soon as the first week in July.
