JC Tretter on NFL: "Unwilling to prioritize player safety

The Akron native President of the NFLPA sounded off on the NFL's COVID-19 safety protocolsNEW YORK (AP) -

The NFL and the NFLPA haven’t come to an agreement on all protocols for training camp and the preseason as the report date for teams draws closer. The two sides finalized the protocols regarding team travel, media, and treatment response, and have also updated the facilities protocol to specifically address training camp based on recommendations from a joint committee of doctors, trainers and strength coaches formed by the league and players’ union. The league sent a 42-page memo to teams last Friday outlining those proposals. But testing and the number of preseason games remain unresolved.

NFLPA President JC Tretter, who is a native of nearby Akron and plays center for the Cleveland Browns, blogged on the NFLPA site accusing the league of being "unwilling to prioritize player safety."

The players want no preseason games, while the NFL still wants two.  Players also wanted a 48-day training camp to try to reduce the number of injuries given the shortened offseason.  With the July 28th start to camps, the NFL  has fallen short of that.
