NFLPA president JC Tretter quickly noted that offseason programs are set to end on June 26 by the joint agreement of the NFL and NFLPA and that the union has not agreed to any reopening plan.

NFL vice president of communications Brian McCarthy said the league continues working with the union and that there are not ready to talk about specific dates for any change to the current operating procedure.

"We are not putting dates on a potential return," McCarthy said. "We have been and will continue working hand in hand with the NFLPA. We will base our decisions on the latest medical advice and in compliance with local and state guidelines."
