Our regular season starts in September, by that time MLB will have - in theory - been playing for about 5 weeks. Roughly the same as basketball. If those two leagues are forced to shutdown, the NFL won’t wait for trouble to happen. The NFL will quickly join them and shutdown as well.
We will all know more in August.
the virus could be around for many years, maybe forever. they are going to figure out how to play around it and start the season. if it gets bad they will shut it down but there will be games played, id bet on that
Asymptomatic people are leading the spread. This disease doesn’t care what the NFL expects. If players and fans are put in close proximity, there will be spread. A player can test negative in the morning and positive in the evening. The WHO made that statement last month but they also clarified that statement. No one can even red say for sure what asymptomatic really means. You can also be presymptomatic and spread it as well.
You have no way to know WHY Ryan Kelly isn’t signed yet. There are plenty of possible reasons. Size of the contract. Length of the contract. Size of the signing bonus. Total guaranteed dollars. YOUR reason might even be the right one. But you have no way to know. At least, not right now.
