Five biggest storylines to watch during Washington Football Team’s training camp
NFL training camp is upon us. Here’s a look at the biggest storylines to watch for the Washington Football Team in 2020.
At long last, some NFL action is here. After an offseason of canceled rookie camps and OTAs, NFL training camps are opening up on Tuesday. Soon, players will be on the field and in action. And soon, we’ll get a chance to see the new-look Washington Football Team for the first time.
Training camp will look different this year than it has in years past. The COVID-19 pandemic has caused a lot of changes to NFL protocol and has also invited some opt-outs for players ahead of the 2020 NFL season. As of this writing, only Caleb Brantley has opted out for Washington, but league-wide, some teams have seen as many as six players elect to take the year off.
The pandemic is going to continue to impact the sport. From opt-outs to the canceled preseason games to shortened rosters, players and coaches are going to have to adapt to the new rules and regulations surrounding the league.
But that’s far from the only big storyline for the Washington Football Team. The squad has endured quite a turbulent offseason that has seen massive changes in the front office and coaching staff as well as major roster upheaval. And, oh yeah, they’re going through a name change and are being investigated regarding sexual harassment allegations made by 15 former employees.
So, needless to say, a lot is going on with this team. But as they return to the football field, these are the five most important on-field storylines to keep an eye on with Washington’s training camp now here.
