Texans’ Justin Reid suggests NFL delay the start of the season
With the “coronavirus” pandemic still sweeping the nation in the United States, the NFL and the Houston Texans will have more massive decisions to make in the coming weeks and months. The league is supposed to be gearing up to begin this year’s training camp by month’s end.
However, many current NFL players have already voiced their concern about the lack of guidance the league has provided at this point in the summer. Houston Texans safety Justin Reid is now suggesting that the start of the 2020-21 season be delayed due to the virus.
“I think it would be beneficial to delay the season two or three weeks, so that way we can answer a lot of questions that, us as players, people as far as fans and the coaching staff, have procedurally on how the season is going to happen,” Reid recently said, via the Houston Chronicle.
Of course, because of the continued spikes in “coronavirus” cases in various locations throughout the United States, Reid of the Texans is not the only active player who feels this way.
Even so, it remains to be seen as to what exactly the league ultimately elects to do as the 2020-21 preseason has already been cut short. Not only that, but the NFL remained 100 percent virtual until only recently as franchises such as the Texans were allowed to reopen their respective facilities earlier this summer. Most notably, the 2020 NFL Draft was fully virtual for the first time in history.
