Some good news for Denver Broncos fans this week. Training Camp will begin on time in Dove Valley. According to Mike Klis of 9News, the Colorado Department of Health has approved the teams COVID-19 response plan. Broncos training camp now has a green light to begin on Thursday with rookies reporting and veterans will arrive on July 28th.
There is still some uncertainty around the league, however. The NFLPA and NFL has reached an agreement over how to handle players who contract the coronavirus. They will be deactivated from the active roster, but instead of receiving an IR designation they will go onto the Commissioner Exempt List with no minimum stay.
While that agreement has been reached, there is some contention between the NFLPA and NFL over a COVID economic and safety proposal. Without that in place, there is still potential for things to fall apart before players actually report to camp. Ian Rapoport of NFL Network noted this morning that this agreement isn’t necessary before the start of camp and that the two sides would work to get that in place before the season.
We at Mile High Report will be here to cover what we can for training camp, but with a restricted media access at camp, there might not be as much to talk about this year. A big part of what made camp a fun thing to cover each year was the fans in attendance. We’ll just have to rely on the few members of the media who are there to report on the events.
Do you think the NFL is doing the right thing going forward with training camp on time?
