From CNN contributor and current New Orleans Saint Malcolm Jenkins:

Fair enough. The NFL can’t replicate the NBA bubble because, as he says, there are more players and staffers involved, more equipment to move around, all of that. Conspiracy theorists might posit that he’s made a lot of money already and won a pair of rings and doesn’t need to play.

Could be wrong, but I don’t think we’ve heard of any other NFL players expressing concern over football’s return. Some NBA players have opted out of the Orlando return, but NFL guys seem like they’re prepared to get back to it when training camp starts up. Maybe that changes if COVID levels continue to spike in certain areas as we get closer to the beginning of the season.

We’ll see.
