NFL allows coaches back to facilities
Some normalcy has returned to the NFL.
This past Friday the league allowed coaches back into their facilities to continue preparing for the possible upcoming season. Up until this point, although teams could have up to 75 people at their team facilities, coaches and players were not allowed.
With coaches being added to the number of personnel allowed in the facilities, the NFL has increased the maximum number to 100 persons, depending on governmental regulations and implementation of health protocols.
“As has been emphasized in previous advice on reopening facilities, this may occur only if your club has otherwise received necessary permission from state and local governments to reopen its facility,” Goodell wrote.
Goodell also noted that before players will be allowed back into team facilities, the NFL would work in conjunction with each teams medical staff to produce testing methods for said players.
Players are likely to continue not begin allowed in the facilities until training camp begins in July.
In Saints’ news, cornerback Eli Apple signed with the Carolina Panthers, making it the third former Saints to sign with New Orleans’ South Division rivals.
Earlier this year, quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and wide receiver Keith Kirkwood signed contracts with the Panthers.
