They can push it back as long as they need to, as long as they get this deal done.

Well I hope it's soon or we will be starting free agency after the draft.

Lets just skip the 2006 season so they can continue to negotiate. I hope the owners don't give in.

"The deal that NFL owners will vote on guarantees that players will receive 59.5 percent of all football revenue over the six-year extension of the CBA, ESPN's Chris Mortensen reports. That 59.5 percent includes a "cash over cap" limit that addresses the concerns of low revenue clubs about how much teams actually spend on their payrolls in a given year.
The deal also includes the ability to give credits and make adjustments on individual teams' spending on cash over the cap, according to what Upshaw told Mortensen. It is possible that a team that exceeds the spending limit will have their salary cap adjusted the following year by the amount they spend over the cap.

IMO, we all should be feeling reasonably optimistic that the 2 sides get a
package put togehter. They keep extending the deadline so they can continue to talk and negotiate. And from the above link, it appears the owners are developing a mechanism to solve the pesky "cash over cap"
