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."

Included in those watching in horror were several San Francisco 49ers players, including Richard Sherman, who, like so many, wondered how the situation might have been handled differently by authorities had the skin color of those taking part in the chaotic mob been different. The cornerback didn't mince words, calling the angry protesters

49ers' Richard Sherman reacts to fan comment that Jets can't have K'Waun Williams or Jason Verrett

K'Waun Williams is one of nearly 40 San Francisco 49ers players scheduled to become free agents. And now, head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have their former defensive coordinator to contend with in free agency. On Thursday, the New York Jets named Robert Saleh as their new head coach, and there is some concern from the 49ers fanbase that many of the free agents on the defensive side of the football might follow their former coach. One fan stated on Twitter that Saleh could have a number of the 49ers defenders, including cornerback Richard Sherman. Two players who the fan hopes are untouchable are cornerbacks Jason Verrett and K'Waun Williams. Sherman (virtually and maybe in real life) laughed at the suggestion that Williams can't be allowed

"I think Kinlaw is going to be a dominant force in this league," Lynch recently told The Athletic while comparing the defender's rookie season to the start of Hall of Fame defensive lineman Warren Sapp. "I should say, 'is going to become,' because he's not there yet. He's shown flashes." Sam Monson of Pro Football Talk (PFF) recently named breakout
