The NFL will be keeping its virtual offseason going for at least several more weeks.

According to NFL Network reporter Tom Pelissero, the NFL extended its virtual offseason program to June 26th, which means there won’t be any in-person minicamps until at least the reported date.

The COVID-19 outbreak has made the NFL weary of having any kind of in-person offseason program. Even with the virus starting to subside, it appears the league isn’t taking any chances with its players for at least the rest of this month.

NFL teams now have the option to extend their virtual offseason program for another two weeks, or discontinue after this week. Most teams have opted to cancel said program and simply wait until training camp to get everyone back together at their facilities.

There was some hope that the league could start allowing players to return to their team facilities in small groups in the coming weeks. But for now, it looks like the original plan of having everyone not report back until training camp is back in play.
