We use stickers to organize what equipment belongs to each player. The top stickers go inside the ear hole for every helmet. The middle stickers go under the shoulder pad epaulets. The bottom stickers go at a player’s cubby where cleats are stored. pic.twitter.com/lcxbGpzfb8— Skins EQ Guy (@Skins_EQ_Guy) May 26, 2020

To any Redskins fans getting upset at Simms' ranking of Haskins should google his past QB rankings and you'll realize you can probably just ignore this year's rankings...— Nick Akridge (@PFF_NickAkridge) May 26, 2020

Dolphins owner Stephen Ross today to @CNBC: “I think there definitely will be a football season this year. The real question is: Will there be fans in the stadiums? I think right now today we’re planning on having fans in the stadiums."— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) May 26, 2020
NFL and union negotiated/announced an end date to the offseason program of June 26, which gave them added flexibility. They've discussed having players back, on a voluntary basis, for a week in June to test protocols.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 26, 2020
But staging an actual minicamp = a different level than that. https://t.co/qJTsfDwzDl
Players: our union has not agreed to any reopening plan. Any reports about coming back to work are hypothetical. You will hear from the NFLPA when there are new developments.— JC Tretter (@JCTretter) May 26, 2020
Source says it's "possible... but not definite" that NFL coaches will be permitted back in teams' facilities next week, as @CharlesRobinson reported. NFLPA source said union has no knowledge of any plans at this point for players to participate in on-field practices in June.— MarkMaske (@MarkMaske) May 26, 2020

The NFL and NFLPA have been working with their joint committee on health and safety. Among the ideas discussed ...— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 26, 2020
• Strict limits on # of players in the building while physicals and testing take place.
• Then 2-3 weeks of strength and conditioning.
• Then helmets go on.
Bottom line is the union, league and joint committee are still working through protocols. The idea, like I said earlier, of having some players back in by the end of June to test protocols has been discussed.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) May 26, 2020
As for who is on that committee. ⬇️⬇️⬇️https://t.co/PmkSRkgioz
Also important note that the NHL would test players daily for coronavirus if/when the playoffs resume.— Samantha Pell (@SamanthaJPell) May 26, 2020
Bettman estimated the league could conduct 25,000 to 30,000 tests, which would cost millions of dollars.
