On the off chance that Tom Brady, or some other free agent so far as that is concerned, wanted to meet with a team before possibly signing with them over the coming days and weeks, that is never again an alternative.
As per an NFL memo to teams (acquired by ESPN’s Adam Schefter), free agents are not permitted to make a trip to point of view teams and teams can’t make a trip to meet with free agents all due to the coronavirus pandemic.
This absolutely will affect players, as imagine a scenario in which Brady wanted to travel to Tampa Bay, for instance, to see its facility and meet with Bruce Arians. Everything must presently be done remotely.
The memo said free organization and the new league year are as yet scheduled for Wednesday.
What’s more, there’s some language concerning physicals. There’s an opportunity they should be possible by a “neutral physician” near where the player is if the player concurs. Teams likewise reserve the right to not authoritatively sign a player until an exam is finished.
Elsewhere in the world, OTAs will be deferred uncertainly and all players can’t enter an NFL facility for about fourteen days starting Tuesday, except for supervised rehab.
