Players blitz NFL with tweets about safe return (1 Viewer)

By Staff | ESPN

NFL players took to Twitter on Sunday in a coordinated effort to urge the NFL to listen to its experts' guidelines on safely opening training camps amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Many of the players used the hashtag #WeWantToPlay to accompany their tweets.

NFL Players Association president JC Tretter tweeted: "What you are seeing today is our guys standing up for each other and for the work their union leadership has done to keep everyone as safe as possible. The NFL needs to listen to our union and adopt the experts' recommendations #wewanttoplay"

The idea for the tweets came from Miami Dolphins cornerback Byron Jones, who suggested the idea on one of the players' internal planning calls Sunday, a source told ESPN's Dan Graziano. Jones' idea, the source said, was to get the message out to the public that the players want to play but that they want the teams to make sure it's as safe as possible -- that it wasn't about players just looking out for their money or not wanting to show up for camp.
