Training camp has started, and football is attempting to play a 2020 season. A lot of the NFL news has been players opting out of the season. With that said here are three recent NFL storylines that involve wanting to play football.
Doug Pederson tests positive for COVID-19
The big NFL news is the Eagles. Eagles head coach Doug Pederson tested positive for COVID-19. Pederson is currently asymptomatic and is feeling fine. All of the NFL teams have gotten much better at teaching and training virtually and that’s what Pederson is planning on doing. Pederson stressed that the team is bigger than one person. This was a message that Pederson stressed during their 2017 Super Bowl run when Carson Wentz got injured.
Ravens sign tight end
The Ravens had an opening at tight end when they traded Hayden Hurst to the Falcons in the offseason. The Ravens signed tight end Jerell Adams. Adams is going into his fourth year, after playing for the Giants, Texans, and Saints. Veterans are going to be key this year due to the shortened off-season, and Adams will be competing with Eli Wolf for the third tight end spot. Wolf is an undrafted rookie free agent, and this is one of the few position battles in Baltimore.
Minshew of COVID list
Gardner Minshew was placed on the reserve/COVID list on Sunday. Earlier this morning hew was reactivated. Minshew is now allowed to resume football activities. This is good news for the Jaguars as their young quarterback can get back onto the field. The Jaguars are in the process of rebuilding and Minshew has an opportunity to lock up the starting quarterback job if he plays well in 2020.
