National Football League proposes just one preseason game, players still opposed

The league has already canceled the first and fourth weeks of the preseason, but players are pushing to scrap it all together.

The league's proposal to the players also includes an offer for a longer training camp acclimation period, a source told ESPN's Dan Graziano, which is closer to what the union has proposed.

If the NFLPA accepts the league's proposal, the two sides will be compromising with a one-game schedule.

The NFL and the NFL Players Association agreed Monday on a testing protocol for the first two weeks of training camps.

Immobile converted the penalty himself and Szczesny denied Lazio an equaliser when he palmed away a Sergej Milinkovic-Savic free kick.


Still, agreement on testing should allow for players to report to camp on time. Rookies for other teams begin arriving Tuesday.

Based on that timeline and a July 28 start date, players wouldn't even touch a football until August 18, wouldn't put on their pads until August 28, and would have about two weeks of full contact before the regular season begins on September 13.

The San Francisco 49ers have informed players to expect training camp to start later than the scheduled July 28 date due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to Chris Biderman of the Sacramento Bee.Update: Biderman has informed me that the story mistakenly published by the Sacramento Bee was an early draft.

The NFLPA now wants no preseason games at the recommendation of NFL medical experts that have advised a minimum of 21 days of strength and conditioning, 10 days of non-padded practices, and 14 days of padded practices.

The NFLPA unveiled initial test numbers last Thursday, where it announced 72 players tested positive for coronavirus. Five days later, that number increased by 23.
