The Las Vegas Raiders rookies are now in Henderson, Nevada, for the start of training camp and new developments on Monday may prompt veterans to join them in eight days.

Several news outlets reported that the NFL and the NFL Players Association have agreed to a plan for daily coronavirus testing.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that this development is another sign that training camp may start on time, which would bode well for the regular season starting on schedule.

Veterans are supposed to report to training camp July 28. The NFL season starts Sept. 10 and the Raiders begin the season Sept. 13 at the Carolina Panthers.

It’s been a long, winding road and nothing is set, but it seems like we might actually see the Raiders getting to work as a full team soon, which would be a beautiful sight for all of us.
