NFLPA trying to keep things virtual
It looks like the NFLPA is pushing for their players to not participate in offseason workouts in person for a second straight offseason. Of course last year’s were canceled due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, of course the pandemic is still an issue, but millions of people are being vaccinated each day and the NFL’s COVID-19 testing system was great during the 2020 season.
NFLPA president J.C. Tretter told the players on Friday that they are pushing to not have in person offseason workouts and to instead hold virtual meetings., according to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network.
Some players will miss out on workout bonus money, but it’s only 300 of 2,500 guys.
While COVID is still an issue, I believe the main reason the NFLPA doesn’t want to have the players participate in the offseason workouts is because of the wear and tare on their bodies and it enables to younger players to have a better chance to taking some of the positions held by veterans.
We’ll have to wait and see where this goes.
