The NFL Players Association continues to urge union members to boycott voluntary in-person offseason workouts amid concerns related to COVID-19 spikes throughout the United States, and a handful of team rosters have already said they'll continue working virtually for the foreseeable future.
According to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, members of the Dallas Cowboys held a Zoom video conference on Wednesday to discuss their intentions for upcoming scheduled activities. The outcome of that meeting wasn't mentioned, and the NFLPA Twitter account that has been sharing statements from players hadn't yet tweeted anything related to Dallas since the discussion occurred as of Thursday afternoon.
On Wednesday, Florio noted that "teams that have a significant number of players with workout bonuses" won't be pushed to join the boycott. He mentioned the Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers, Jacksonville Jaguars and Kansas City Chiefs as four candidates.
In the grand scheme of things, this back-and-forth between NFL owners and the NFLPA means little to fans who don't care about supposed "competitive advantages" that may or may not be gained via April workouts. As things stand today, there's no threat of a work stoppage or the canceling of even preseason games. One does, however, wonder about the future states of offseason calendars in non-pandemic years if the union manages to win a big victory and keep things virtual through the spring.
