NFL training camps, season to begin on time

The NFL and NFLPA finalized an agreement Friday afternoon that will allow training camps, and the 2020 season to begin on time, according to a number of reports.

The Packers will report for training camp Tuesday, where they'll be tested for COVID-19, then sent home to participate in virtual meetings.

They'll return on day four for more testing, and pending two negative tests, will be back at the facility on day five and six for physicals.

The first day of practice won't come until day 16, and the first padded practice will be on day 21.

Among other issues agreed to Friday, according to ESPN, are 80-man roster deadline, which is August 16. Teams can go with 90-man rosters if they go with a split squad setup.

The salary cap for 2020 will remain the same, but will dip to $175 million in 2021.

The Packers open their season Sunday, Sept. 13 at Minnesota.
