The NFL has managed to stay mostly on-schedule for the entire 2020 offseason, but the one thing they haven’t been able to do is in-person activities. NFL facilities remain closed, and they will remain closed until state governments for all 32 teams allow business to be conducted.

And while some states are beginning to open up to businesses, the NFL has decided to extend their virtual program through the end of the month.

According to a memo sent to all 32 franchises on Wednesday, virtual offseason programs have been extended from May 15 to now May 29. However, the memo did leave open the possibility of some workout programs happening within NFL facilities.

“All offseason workout programs must conclude by June 26,” the memo read per Ian Rapoport. “In the event Club facilities reopen at some point in June, under protocols established by the League in consultation with our medical advisors, the remaining on-field portion of the program will be determined in consultation with the Joint Committee and will be promulgated to Clubs at the earliest possible date.”

June is typically a pretty quiet month in the NFL offseason calendar, so expect the NFL to spend that time trying to figure out how exactly to proceed. Training camp typically begins in mid-to-late July, so there remains plenty of time for the situation to change.
