The NFL had targeted Tuesday, July 28, as the start date for all teams to bring in their full rosters ... but that will not happen in Thousand Oaks for the LA Rams.

The Athletic reported on Thursday that the Rams have decided to delay the start of training camp and have yet to set a new date.

There is a chance that the NFL could still allow teams to start Tuesday, however.

The league and NFL Players Association are still negotiating terms of what this season will look like during the coronavirus pandemic. NFL Media reported that there is a soft deadline of Sunday, July 26, for an agreement.

It doesn’t appear, however, that the Rams’ decision to wait will create anymore chaos than teams are already dealing with. The Athletic reports that players will be ready when the Rams are.

Meanwhile, the Rams are getting props from their players for the way their training and medical staffs are preparing for training camp ... whenever that may be.
