Start of training camps signals the dawn of a new season
In what's been the strangest NFL offseason perhaps ever, fans are about to get some sense of normalcy back. Several reports indicate that all 32 teams will officially kick off their training camps on July 28, the date full squads are expected to report by.
The NFL's schedule has been in flux since the coronavirus pandemic first shook the country, and teams have been unable to hold their normal OTAs and rookie minicamps, instead holding meetings virtually, as they did for the draft. According to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport, teams are expecting veterans to report to camps 47 days before the start of the regular season, as the CBA requires.
Of course, things may still change. The NFL already canceled the Pro Football Hall of Fame Game, originally scheduled for Aug. 6, and may shorten the preseason to just two games per team. But in order to start the regular season on time on Sept. 10, getting a date for training camp was a big first step.
Should the NFL be able to safely play the 2020 season, there's plenty to look forward to. There's Tom Brady taking over in Tampa Bay and Cam Newton potentially filling his shoes in New England. Record-breaking college quarterbacks Joe Burrow and Tua Tagovailoa have their first chance to make their marks in the pro ranks. More than a dozen teams are serious contenders to meet at Raymond James Stadium for Super Bowl LV on Feb. 7, 2021.
