There will be no fans at training camps for any NFL teams this year because of COVID-19.
“Fans will not be permitted at training camp this year,” NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy said (via PFT). “This is a league-wide policy. Clubs may hold up to two events at their stadium provided they adhere to all state and local guidelines.”
Several NFL clubs, including the Eagles, have already determined that they will not have fans in the stands for home games. Other teams will limit the number of fans entering their stadium, as the Ravens have by slicing their tickets available to 1,400.

- The details of Myles Garrett‘s contract extension with the Browns are not yet fully available, though it is believed to be a five-year, $125 million pact. Garrett, who was suspended for six games last season for hitting Steelers QB Mason Rudolph in the head with his helmet, said one moment shouldn’t define him and told Cleveland to “keep betting” on him. “In 2017, the Cleveland Browns bet on me,” Garrett said. “This city quickly became my home and these people quickly became my family. I’m eternally grateful for this opportunity, the support of my friends and family, the organization, my teammates, the fans — I could go on forever, but even that wouldn’t be enough time to express my gratitude. I’ll just say this: Keep betting on me, Cleveland, because I won’t let you down. Now, let’s get to work.”
