NFL agrees to cancel 2020 preseason.

REPORT: NFL to cancel 2020 preseason amid pandemic


The NFL Players Association and league's owners have agreed to scrap the 2020 preseason while also reducing the size of training camp rosters. 

Union executives informed players of the agreement Tuesday evening on a conference call. 

The two sides agreed to eliminate all four weeks of preseason one day after the owners offered to meet the demands of the players to do so. Owners originally wanted to reduce the preseason from four to two games (and were later willing to stage just one per team), but the NFLPA argued that a full August schedule would make it impossible for them to have the adequate acclimation period recommended by the joint medical task force and that it was unnecessary to subject players to travel-related risk of contracting the coronavirus for exhibition games.
