It has long been reported, but nothing was official until earlier this morning when NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent sent an email out to to the general managers and head coaches of all 32 teams notifying them that players can start reporting next week.

The 2020 training camp report dates are as follows:

  • Tuesday, July 21 - All rookies report
  • Thursday, July 23 - Quarterbacks and injured players report
  • Tuesday July 28 - All other players report to camp

The Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans, who play on this season’s Thursday night kickoff, will have their rookies report on Monday.

This reporting schedule was finalized on Friday, and on Friday the league also sent out the following memo.

“NFL clubs met today via videoconference and received an update on preparations for the 2020 season. We will continue to implement the health and safety protocols developed jointly with the NFLPA, and based on the advice of lea​ding medical experts, including review by the CDC. We will address additional issues in a cooperative way. All decisions will be made in an effort to put us in position to play a full regular season and postseason culminating with the Super Bowl which is the shared goal of the clubs and the players.”

The NFL and NFLPA are still working through their corovavirus protocols, which as of now allows no more than 20 players at a time in the team facility. That also means that the above report dates could be altered. Even though the league is powering though right now, everything is still fluid and could change at a moments notice.

With renovation’s of Halas Hall complete, the Chicago Bears will be holding training camp at their practice facility from now on. This year’s camp as already been announced as being closed to the public.
