NFL expects all training camps to begin on time


NFL executive vice president Jeff Pash relayed on the Thursday that the NFL has advised all 32 teams to anticipate their training camps starting on time next month, according to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert.

For the Seahawks, players will be expected to report to the Virginia Mason Athletic Center (VMAC) in Renton, WA no later than July 28 in advance of the 2020 season.

Pash, speaking to reports on a conference call after hosting a virtual meeting with the league owners, said that “active discussions” will occur about how things will be handled from there.

It seems like a real possibility the four-week preseason slate will be shortened, especially after the league cancelled the traditional Hall of Fame game, which was supposed to occur on August 8 between the Steelers and Cowboys.

The league is also still working out their policy for allowing fans into games this season, and there is some indication they will leave those decisions up to individual teams.

And finally, the NFL is discussing roster rule changes that would accommodate players who are unavailable for games because of positive coronavirus tests – although no final decisions have been made.

The league already bumped up the practice squad roster size this offseason, but more additions could be on the horizon.
