NFL gives teams go-ahead for rookies to report Tuesday

Eagles rookies are scheduled to report to the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday with the full team assembled within a week, the NFL announced on Saturday.

In a letter to the 32 teams, NFL Executive Vice President of Football Operations Troy Vincent, the long-time Eagles cornerback, informed teams that rookies can report on Tuesday, quarterbacks and players who were injured at the end of last year by Thursday and everybody else by next Tuesday.

The NFL and NFLPA are negotiating through the weekend on various safety protocols that will govern training camp operations and practices.

According to the NFL, no more than 20 players are currently allowed in the team’s facility. 

NFL rosters currently have 90 players.

Doug Pederson said last month that the Eagles will use all available facilities to keep players separated as much as possible. That would include Lincoln Financial Field, which has two large locker rooms.

“It's going to look different, it will feel different,” Pederson said in June. “But at the same time, we are going to embrace it and we are going to make the most of it, and our job as coaches is to prepare our football team for the regular season.”
