While several teams conduct their offseason program virtually due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it comes as no surprise that the NFL has made changes to its Spring League Meeting.
The meeting, originally scheduled May 19-20 in the Los Angeles area, will now be held virtually, NFL Network's Judy Battista reported Thursday.
The NFL released the following statement:
"We continue to closely monitor the conditions relating to COVID-19, and, based on the latest medical and public health information, believe that changing to a virtual meeting is in everyone's best interests."
The changes come a week after the 2020 NFL Draft was conducted entirely remotely as team facilities remain closed in accordance with federal, state and local laws surrounding COVID-19.
The Annual League Meeting scheduled for March 29- April 1 was cancelled so rule changes and other football matters that were supposed to be discussed and voted upon then will now be done virtually at the May meeting.
