(WFRV) – As the NFL and NFLPA work to shape what this year’s training camps will look like amid the pandemic there is one thing that will be missing, preseason games.

During an NFLPA call on Tuesday it was said there would be no preseason games this year, according to reports by Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, and Jim Trotter of ESPN.

A day earlier it was widely reported the league was set to offer make an offer of no preseason games to the players.

The players union had previously asked that all preseason games be canceled, but the league was holding out hope at least one. That changed following Monday’s with league owners.

There were additional updates to come out of the call according to Pelissero and Trotter. That includes 80 player roster sizes for training camp, as well as agreements on voluntary or high-risk opt-outs and stipends if games are lost.
