The Cincinnati Bengals might have to bring fewer players than usual to training camp this year as the NFL and NFLPA change normal operating policy in the face of a pandemic.
According to Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio, the most recent negotiations featured the NFLPA advocating for a reduction of normal rosters by 10 players, bringing the total down to a maximum of 80.
The updates featured some details on outlined operating procedure:
The union also wants no more than 20 players in a given facility at one time during the initial acclimatization period (training and conditioning) covering the first 21 days of camp. The number doubles to a maximum of 40 during the next phase of 10 days of non-contact practices.
