What the league is now focused on is getting summer programs and training camp into full swing, so that the NFL season can start, hopefully as scheduled.
"We believe that each of these steps will enhance our ability to protect the health and safety of players and your football staffs and are consistent with a sound approach to risk management in the current environment", Goodell said in the memo sent to teams. The full squad typically reports just over two weeks prior to the first preseason, which the Raiders are scheduled to play on August 13 at Seattle. Dallas usually trains in Oxnard and Pittsburgh in nearby Latrobe, Pennsylvania.
The Cowboys have never held their entire preseason at home.
Should the fight against the novel coronavirus take more positive turns, one can presume the Steelers will resume camping in Latrobe in 2021.
The Steelers team president and owner released a statement making clear this decision came following an order from the NFL. Allegiant Stadium is nearing completion just off the Las Vegas Strip, with July 31 as a scheduled completion date.
Trump declares himself the President of Law and Order
If governors fail to take action, Trump said he will deploy the United States military and "quickly solve the problem for them". Courts have historically been very reluctant to second-guess a president's military declarations, he said.
The Raiders will conduct their camp at their new facility now under construction in Henderson, Nev.
Mark Davis announced at last year's training camp that the team would be back to Napa for training camp this year.
The NFL is planning to start training camps on time, with government mandated shelter-in-place restrictions loosening as the economy begins to re-open.
The Seahawks, who now exclusively hold their training camps at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center, won't be impacted by the news, but five teams around the league regularly travel for the summer event and will now be relegated to their home facilities.
