Something that is becoming a trend around the league.

Last summer, Coach Payton gave the players liberty to train on their own. For that reason, I don't think this is a big deal.

Not to be cynical but Vets are no dummies. Make sure the rookies and 2nd year players can’t learn in person = much better odds vets keep their jobs.

The protocols are no mystery now. We know what'll be required better than last year by a million miles. They'll be fine.

I dunno.... Even Vegas said no masks starting June 1st.
They already took social distancing away, unless you're in a sports book or a poker table haha
These guys are going to need a pamphlet for ever state they're visiting 😂

If there are no voluntary work outs then the team should assign a minimum weight requirement based on the4 players body type and position. If they don't meet the requirement when showing up for mandatory mini camp then they don't get paid and are sent home until they do. If once training camp opens if they still can't pass the requirements or pass the fitness (that all) test all teams require based on the position then they should be pre-pared to be cut (for or cause) These guys make more than 95% of average people and as such they are responsible to be pre-pared to do the job they are contracted for or lose their contract.

With Trautman already working with Jameis, my major preseason concern is Baun (and Ruiz a tiny bit)

You’re thinking of Hokie’s Saints
Modern pro players do not use camp to get in shape- they stay in shape year round

Their salaries are of ZERO consequence to this discussion
fans really show their butts when they complain about players’ money

Yea , they stay in shape hitting the clubs till 3am and getting down and dirty with their massage therapists?

Its not my money and by being here I am supporting the whole damn thing but don't tell others they are showing the "butts" when they talk about players money. I see you arse hanging out right now in that statement you made.

You are free to tell me how exactly my arse is hanging out
I’m not sure if you are able to, but you’re free to
