The San Francisco 49ers and the other 31 NFL teams across the league may each be allowed only 80 total players on their roster at the start of training camp. That was one of several updates provided by Tom Pelissero of NFL Network that came from a call on Tuesday with the NFL Players Association. Right now, the maximum number of players allowed on each team's roster is 90. That means each will need to make some cuts to get down to the lower roster limit before training camp begins. Some other updates from Pelissero include the NFL's offer to eliminate the entire preseason leading to the 2020 regular season, a push for a longer ramp-up period in training camp, opt-out conditions for those who prefer not to play during the coronavirus pandemic, and money
