Well, hot damn, it appears NFL training camps will start on time and, fingers crossed, so will the regular season in September.

Ending weeks of discussion, the NFL owners agreed on terms of a new plan for the 2020 season while dealing with the coronavirus pandemic. The NFL Players Association has voted to recommend the deal to players, they will vote on it later Friday.

Barring something unexpected, we are days away from all teams being in training camp. The Raiders are planning to start camp with their full roster Tuesday at their new facility in Henderson, Nevada. Still, while camp is starting, the progression to the season will be slow and calculated. Actual practices won’t start until mid-August.

The Raiders start the regular season Sept. 13 at the Carolina Panthers. The lead-up to the season is going to be unusual and the season is going to be unusual. But, at least, it appears we will have an NFL season and that’s worth celebrating.
