The NFL is coming under fire from the players with just over a week until teams are scheduled to report for training camp.

Players took to social media Sunday to express concern with respect to the league's lack of transparency and clarity regarding health and safety protocols to combat COVID-19.

New Orleans Saints defensive end Cam Jordan was among those who voiced some unease, suggesting his comfort level in partaking is somewhat low. At the same time, Jordan admitted the physical nature of football itself is bound to create some complications (via Luke Johnson of

“I teeter between a four and a seven,” Jordan joked.

“At the end of the day, I hit people for a living, so the transmission of bodily fluid is bound to happen,” Jordan said.

Jordan agreed there is a certain “unknown” element to the upcoming season (via Johnson):

“What are the procedures going to be like? What is it going to take to get this season back on the road? I wish I could say once we get back in the building everything is going back to normal, but we don’t know the unknown.”

The Saints are expected to be one of the top teams in the NFC in the event the league and NFLPA can resolve some of these questions regarding player safety.

Jordan underwent core-muscle surgery in the offseason and appears to be at full strength following a campaign in which he had a career-high 15.5 sacks to go along with 25 quarterback hits and 15 tackles for a loss.
