49ers’ Richard Sherman on NFL-NFLPA discussions: ‘We will not compromise [player] health’

Jul 13, 2020 at 7:51 PM--

The NFL Players Association and the NFL on Monday continued their dialogue to hash out some rules leading to players reporting to training camps and for the 2020 season. San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman shared the following update on the meeting via Twitter.

The two sides still reportedly disagree on the frequency of testing for COVID-19, with players wanting it to take place daily, and the NFL wants it to be less frequent.

Pro Football Talk reports that nothing new came out of Monday's meeting, with several items likely left unresolved.

"Per a source with knowledge of the discussions, they proceeded 'as expected' without 'not really' any news coming from the conversations," wrote Mike Florio.

NFL teams are scheduled to report to training camps on July 28, with rookies potentially reporting earlier. If that happens, it will be the first time players, aside from a few exceptions involving injuries, have been allowed to meet face-to-face with coaches and staff since closures in March.

The coronavirus pandemic has shown no signs of slowing with the number of cases increasing in many regions.

The Miami Dolphins have reportedly communicated with their players that "everything is up in the air," and that the team "could see things getting pushed back." While the Dolphins are still planning for a July 28 start for training camp, they feel plans "could literally pivot on a dime."

Well, they do have running back Frank Gore on the roster. Barnwell lists him as "likely" to be a future inductee. What about the talent-depleted Miami Dolphins? Yeah, that one is harder. Barnwell couldn't come up with anyone who had more than a 10 percent chance to one day earn Hall of Fame honors. For the San Francisco 49ers, the decision was pretty easy. The ESPN writer lists veteran cornerback Richard Sherman as "likely" to make the Hall of Fame, which means he has between a
