While there is still much to be figured out before there is a 2020 NFL season, this is a landmark day for the Las Vegas Raiders as their first rookie class reports to training camp in Henderson, Nevada.

The Las Vegas Review Journal is reporting the Raiders’ seven-player rookie class and several undrafted free agents are going to camp on Monday. The plan is to start slowly with physicals and meetings and then to get the rookies onto the field for conditioning later in the week.

Monday is also the first time Jon Gruden and his coaching staff are meeting with the rookies since they were drafted. All of the previous work has been done virtually.

Expect the Raiders to sign their rookie class very soon because they can’t do any real work until they are signed. Once the physical process is over, the deals should be coming in.

The veteran players are supposed to report to camp July 28, but nothing is official.

But, still, rejoice, Raiders fans — there are actual football players at the facility! That’s a great start.

For a quick reminder, here are the Raiders’ rookies in full:
