NFL Extends Virtual Offseason, Scraps Minicamps Through June

The National Football League has extended its virtual offseason, and has also reportedly decided against in-person minicamps through the rest of this month.

According to the NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero, the teams were notified on Thursday that the virtual offseason would be extended through June 26.

Pelissero added that teams could extend their virtual offseason if they so choose, or discontinue it, as some are already doing.

“The NFL and NFLPA continue to work together on remaining protocols to create a safe reopening for training camp,” Pelissero reported.

Last month, the league released its schedule for the season, which includes teams playing four preseason games and 16 regular-season games.

Training camps are expected to begin next month.

With that in mind, the NFL and its players association are working on COVID-19 protocols, to ensure camps are reopened safely, NFL’s Nick Shook reports.
