The global coronavirus pandemic continues to affect almost everyone’s life around the world. The NFL has been able to push forward with parts of their offseason, but things have definitely changed, and we have already lost rookie mini-camps and other offseason activities as the league works to protect their players and employees from COVID-19.
The NFL draft was done virtually this year, which was a big change from previous years when the top draft picks got their time to shine. This year the Redskins selected Liberty WR Antonio Gandy-Golden in the 4th round, and the TV networks were ready with a video package for the most interesting man in the NFL draft.
One thing they didn’t highlight at the time was that AGG had contracted COVID-19 on March 24th and self-isolated for 2 weeks. He was cleared on April 7th, and says he feels 100% now. This is great news for Antonio Gandy-Golden, his family, and the Redskins!
Mentioned on my pod three nights ago that I'd learned one of #Redskins' draft picks had recovered from COVID-19. I withheld his name. Was surprised more listeners didn't tug on that thread. But it's no secret anymore. (4:12) https://t.co/nBaH3RnptR— Burgundy Blog (@BurgundyBlog) May 20, 2020
