The NFL is planning for a season that could be as short as eight games, according to Daniel Kaplan of SportsBusiness Journal.

Under that scenario, the NFL season would kick off in late November, with five weeks allotted for free agency, training camps and possibly a preseason game.

The league year would have to begin in October for this plan to occur, according to Kaplan.

The way we see it

There have been numerous dates suggested as a deadline for the league and players to reach an agreement. There's no telling for sure how long players would need to prepare before the start of a new season, but full training camps and a complete preseason still remain a possibility if a new agreement is reached in the near future.
