The NFL is anticipating an on-time return to play this fall, with training camp set to begin next week.

In a memo sent to league managers and head coaches today, teams were informed that training camp would move forward as planned, with rookies set to report on Tuesday.

“At yesterday’s League meeting, the membership was advised that under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the reporting dates for training camp this year are as follows:

  • Rookies – July 21
  • Quarterbacks and injured players – July 23
  • All other players – July 28

Here was the official memo:

While the league remains optimistic, talks between the NFL and NFLPA are ongoing regarding the specifics of a return-to-play plan.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, both sides would like to reach an agreement on the money issues that come with training camp in the coming days, with further talks on a thorough plan regarding the safety and well-being of players set to continue through camp.

Until then, though, players will be on the field and preparing for the 2020 NFL season.

Houston and Kansas City will open the season on Thursday, September 10, followed by the full slate of games beginning on Sunday, September 13.

Super Bowl LV is scheduled for February 7 in Tampa, FL at Raymond James Stadium.

    Can’t wait to hear the black national anthem and how proudly all players will stand and then drop to their knees for the country they live in national anthem

    Those rich self entitled players don’t need paid if they aren’t providing a service, their service is to play and entertain, blame the liberals for the shutdown.

      rickat, suppose a player took a knee during the black national anthem. Would you have a problem with that? If so, why? Would that seem racist to you? Maybe he wouldn’t be a racist. Maybe he’s not against all black people. What if he said he was only protesting the members of BLM who just murdered the young mom for saying “All lives matter” and the ones who beat the shop owner to death in Dallas? If you would have a problem with that, how do you justify Kaepernick saying all cops are pigs and murderers while at the same time wearing a t-shirt that honors the mass murderer in Cuba?
