For the moment.....

Under the collective bargaining agreement, the rookies will report on Tuesday, July 21. Quarterbacks and injured players are to show up two days later, with the full team expected to report on July 28.

For Baltimore, that means their 10-man 2020 draft class and UDFAs will be on an NFL practice field for the first time this week. It will be the first time the coaching staff and front office have seen their newest additions in person since before the draft................The Ravens have eight of their 10 rookie draft picks under contract, with linebacker Malik Harrison the most recent to sign. First-round linebacker Patrick Queen and third-round wide receiver Devin Duvernay are the only two picks that remain unsigned from the group...........https://www.msn.com/en-us/sports/nfl/ravens-rookies-to-report-to-training-camp-tuesday/ar-BB16UqTp?ocid=hplocalnews

Here is the problem. Four more players for the Marlins have tested positive, yet none on the Philies, who they just finished playing.

However, one cannot show symptoms nor test results after exposure, for up to 10 days. So we truly will not know if any Phili players or staff, have come down with it for another week

 

Unlike a stomach bug or even the normal flue, this one is fsr more infectious, tricky.

Yankees now coming here to play and avoiding Marlins.

 

The most f'd up thing in it all.  These guys get tested every day and get their results right away.

 

Joe Schmoe over here gets nothing...

I think the pats have made arrangements with these players.  Bill is going after the #1 pick by allowing their players to take the yr off.

Ftom your lips to the internet's ears... I wouldn't be shocked if true, I do wonder if Brady was still the qb if these guys would still bow out..

60 players have opted out thus far, a fraction of all the players in the NFL, I know, yet this should make people take pause..... Skip this season, I say again, as with the college season. Only for college players put them on redshirt status so that they keep a year of eligibility.

By waiting a year, sure you lose money right now, but you give time for a cure, a vaccine to be made, safely.

Many NFL players opting out for sensible health reasons may have put careers on the line

Thursday afternoon was the deadline for NFL players to opt out of the 2020 season, and the final tally of those who did so is 66.

For some players, like New York Giants tackle Nate Solder, it was likely an easy decision: Solder’s 5-year-old son Hudson has been battling cancer for the entirety of his life, first diagnosed when he was 3 months old, and Solder himself had a bout with testicular cancer in 2014.

For others, it was more difficult for myriad reasons.

All of them are worthy of empathy and have my admiration, because a fair number could be opting out of their NFL careers.

The reality of the NFL is such that that’s likely why we didn’t see more players make the decision to sit out. Coaches and the league move on from star players quickly and lower-tier players even faster.
