49ers’ Richard Sherman says ‘huge outstanding issues’ unresolved in NFL’s plans for 2020

Jul 10, 2020 at 9:06 AM--


The picture for NFL training camps is starting to clear up, according to the latest update from Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. He states that "almost everything" is set with the number of preseason games and testing protocols remaining as the only unresolved issues.

Rapoport also says that, as expected, teams will be unable to host fans during training camp but could host up to two fan events at home stadiums during the preseason.


San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman paints a very different picture of the situation, though. He says there are still significant outstanding issues that remain unresolved.

"We [haven't] agreed to anything in their proposal and literally just sent them a response," wrote Sherman via Twitter.


Hopefully, everything is resolved soon, and the NFL can figure out a way to safely (or as safely as possible) conduct training camps. As Rapoport notes, they are scheduled to begin across the league in 18 days.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman and quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spoke to reporters back-to-back on Tuesday via a video conference call. Between the two interviews, the seat, microphone, and table where Sherman sat were thoroughly wiped and disinfected by a team staff member. It's a reminder of how different things are amid a pandemic. The 49ers, along with the 31 other NFL teams, are trying to navigate their way to the 2020 season, and do so as safely as possible. Players have until Thursday to opt-out of the season should they have concerns for their own health or the health of their families. Sherman is entering his 10th NFL season and third with the 49ers. He has a wife and young children at home. Sherman, however, never really

Who doesn't love a good random ranking during training camp?

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman sat down to speak with reporters on Tuesday. In front of him was an auditorium filled with empty seats, and a single video screen in the middle of them. That screen featured the media, like myself (they'll let anyone in there these days), sitting comfortably in our homes, speaking to the veteran defender virtually via Zoom video conference software. Sherman conducted the entire interview with a face covering on — just one of several precautions in place at the 49ers facility to ensure the safety of players, staff, and their families. It's a reminder of how different the upcoming NFL season will be, a reminder of the new normal amidst a pandemic. It's an adjustment. Sherman knows
