It sounds like NFL Training Camp 2020 is set to begin as scheduled according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Grant Gordon of

In an email obtained by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent notified all 32 NFL clubs’ general managers and head coaches that camp is to “commence as scheduled, with veterans reporting July, 28th.

The email reads:

At [Friday’s] league meeting, the membership was advised that under the Collective Bargaining Agreement, the reporting dates for training camp this year are as follows. Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans rookies are the first who are scheduled to report, which will come Monday. All other teams can have rookies report as early as Tuesday, with veterans following on July 28.”

Rookies – July 21

Quarterbacks and injured players – July 23

All other players – July 28 

As Pelissero also reports, there are continued talks between the league and the NFLPA as to proper protocol. As of this moment, clubs are restricted to no more than 20 players would be allowed in team facilities until the NFLPA signs off on each clubs’ infectious disease emergency response plan. There is an interesting catch to that though; per CBA rules, clubs have the right to set the report date. It’ll be interesting to see how things will shape out with these talks. It seems like things could progressing in regards to the talks compared to earlier in the week. Hopefully, an agreement can come too with the “loss of revenue” in Hope’s that the players will not have to play at any discount.
