Washington CB coach Chris Harris addressing the DC media for the first time. Says his team will play plenty of press coverage and could run system similar to Chargers pic.twitter.com/94EjeNRvYQ— JP Finlay (@JPFinlayNBCS) August 1, 2020
.@fabianmoreau10 is the perfect piece for what we want to accomplish on defense— Washington Football Team (@WashingtonNFL) August 1, 2020
Harris said of Landon Collins:”excellent blitzer...creates havoc when up close to the line of scrimmage....like a sparkplug.”— John Keim (@john_keim) August 1, 2020
They have Fuller to play inside but the more others show they can do the more They can move Fuller around and tap Into his versatility. That means using Moreland inside as well. Was also new to slot duties as a rook. Not easy.— John Keim (@john_keim) August 1, 2020
Chris Harris believes Jimmy Moreland has the versatility to play inside slot and outside. Big thing that stood out from Harris watching his tape was how tough he is. He comes up and tackles in the open field.— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) August 1, 2020
Chris Harris says that because Kendall Fuller can play outside, nickel and some safety, they're going to wait to see where he plays the best.— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) August 1, 2020
"We call ourselves. You're not a corner; you're not a safety. You're a defensive back." Chris Harris on his players being able to play wherever they fit best.— Rhiannon Walker (@InstantRHIplay) August 1, 2020

New: Wide receiver Marqise Lee is planning to opt out of the 2020 season, per league source. He is the seventh #Patriots player to make this choice.— Jim McBride (@globejimmcbride) August 1, 2020
After @globejimmcbride reported that Patriots WR Marqise Lee is opting out of the season, I just spoke with Lee.— Mike Reiss (@MikeReiss) August 1, 2020
Lee became a first-time father in February to a daughter, Alia.
"We just feel like it wasn't smart for us to go out and play this year," Lee told me.
Even throughout his trade demand, Browns TE David Njoku remained part of the team’s offensive plans. As for Njoku’s reported decision to rescind his demand now, my understanding is he was viewed as being professional throughout the process & is still regarded as a good young..1/2— IG: JosinaAnderson (@JosinaAnderson) August 1, 2020
2/2 [Cont on Browns TE David Njoku] ....man in the building. There’s a feeling internally that having more time to reflect and getting back with his old teammates and coaches helped his decision to relent.— IG: JosinaAnderson (@JosinaAnderson) August 1, 2020
My understanding is Matthew Stafford is asymptomatic. Every player who tests positive or has close contact with person(s) who did goes on the list. https://t.co/lyJgGJJkMJ— Tom Pelissero (@TomPelissero) August 1, 2020
A couple of players around the league have already come off the reserve/COVID-19 list. Here's how the players can return. Sidenote: it's a good cheat to see if a player tested positive or not if they're off the list quickly https://t.co/y7AaDgLnU7— Jeff Risdon (@JeffRisdon) August 1, 2020
By our count, 34 NFL players have opted out for 2020, even though the seven-day opt out window still hasn't officially opened.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) August 1, 2020
Opt-out deadline for NFL players is now expected to be moved up to either Tuesday or Wednesday, per league sources, depending on talks this weekend. NFL is pushing to move up the deadline from one week after the new CBA side-letter is signed, and it now is expected even sooner.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 1, 2020
The NFL's opt-out deadline already is too short; the league reportedly now wants to make it even shorter https://t.co/7MHu3qpfr8— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) August 1, 2020
If a starting quarterback opts out, it will be an earthquake. https://t.co/RbnoyXh0mC— Aaron Schatz (@FO_ASchatz) August 1, 2020
BREAKING: Jets LB CJ Mosley has decided to opt out for 2020 due to family health concerns, sources tell ESPN. #Jets— Rich Cimini (@RichCimini) August 1, 2020
CJ Mosley signed a monster five-year, $85 million deal to become a Jet in March 2019. And it'll be September 2021 before he plays his third game for the team.— Albert Breer (@AlbertBreer) August 1, 2020
With all the DLs opting out, former first-round pick Robert Nkemdiche has been talking to teams. Would have to be a low-risk deal but Nkemdiche is telling teams he’s focused and healthy. Down to 315 pounds after getting as high as 345. pic.twitter.com/Apx7vPBWq3— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) August 1, 2020
With no Adams and Mosley, the Jets defense in 2020 is gonna be pretty rough.— Football Perspective (@fbgchase) August 2, 2020

Washington won Super Bowl in season with nine games. No asterisk.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) August 1, 2020
Five years later, Washington won Super Bowl in season with 15 games, three of which were played by Shane Falco and friends. No asterisk.
This one feels like it definitely could be different than those. https://t.co/WOstKcrbGz
There are tons of logistical issues, starting with the size of the team cohorts, wear and tear on a field vs a court, etc. Maybe if they started planning April 1st they'd have had something by now. It can't be organized in 6 weeks or whatever. https://t.co/Gj80gpqgc1— Mike Tanier (@MikeTanier) August 1, 2020

This is what has to concern leagues/teams/players the most. Cannot assume young/healthy athletes will have positive outcomes. https://t.co/xtKTqnC74m— Andrew Brandt (@AndrewBrandt) August 1, 2020
Study of 100 recently recovered #COVID19 cases from Germany, of whom the majority (67%) weren't hospitalised. Cardiac MRI was abnormal in 78%; evidence of inflammation in 60%. Further study required, but suggests heart damage may occur even in mild cases.https://t.co/lQyG2gEc7q— Dr Zoë Hyde (@DrZoeHyde) July 27, 2020
After a bunch of research into why people don’t wear masks, it turns out it’s because they don’t like to be told what to do.— Andy Slavitt @ (@ASlavitt) August 2, 2020
I remember this from when my kids were small so I know exactly how to handle it. I will be offering a cookie & a compliment to people who wear a mask.
This is incredible! I can’t stop watching it https://t.co/7RilKpPR42— ⚾️Jessica⚾️ (@OohLaCLE) August 1, 2020
