I think it's the opposite.

If they're getting close, this will be like an extended training camp for players who have not been playing.

We have to expect a shortened camp with MAYBE one exhibition game if they come to an agreement. So I see this as good news and extra prep time.

Also, I think Bailey will have a breakout year this year.

(I did not predict this in prior years, like many of us had hoped for, but I think his time is NOW. I don't see a 20G 50A season, but I do expect career highs in offense and an emerging all-around effective player)
