NFL plans to open training camps next week, as scheduled


Raiders workouts begin Tuesday July 28

LAS VEGAS (KLAS) – The NFL released a statement from Commissioner Roger Goodell today saying the league plans to open its training camps, as scheduled, next week.

Here is Commissioner Goodell’s statement:

The NFL clubs and the NFL Players Association approved an agreement that broadly resolves all outstanding issues relating to the opening of training camps and start of the 2020 season. Training camps will begin as scheduled. 

We have worked collaboratively to develop a comprehensive set of protocols designed to minimize risk for fans, players, and club and league personnel. These plans have been guided by the medical directors of the NFL and the NFLPA and have been reviewed and endorsed by independent medical and public health experts, including the CDC, and many state and local public health officials. The season will undoubtedly present new and additional challenges, but we are committed to playing a safe and complete 2020 season, culminating with the Super Bowl. 

The NFL has cancelled two of its four preseason games and plans to begin the season as scheduled in early September.

The Las Vegas Raiders will begin full workouts in their new training facility in Henderson on Tuesday July 28. Rookies reported Tuesday July 21.
