The NFL and NFLPA are on the same page that they don’t want the salary cap to plummet in 2021. It’s about how they account for a multibillion-dollar revenue loss. NFL proposed 35% of player salaries in escrow; NFLPA doesn’t want one year of players to take the whole hit.

Another facet of the NFLPA’s counterproposal: Players would be paid a “COVID-19 risk stipend” of up to $500,000 if games are canceled, per sources. Exact figure would depend on when cancellation occurs, among other factors.

The NFLPA sent the NFL an economic counterproposal, per sources: - No escrow of 2020 salaries - Flat salary cap of $198.2M for 2021 - Spread revenue loss this year over 2022-2030 caps - All fully guaranteed money paid even if games are canceled Call scheduled for Monday.

Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill tests positive for coronavirus: https://t.co/H80xD3ZbPB

Bidwill’s symptoms have subsided and he is expected to be released from the hospital this weekend. https://t.co/fQ3BxMTQoh

#Cardinals owner Michael Bidwill has tested positive for COVID-19.

RIP Flossie Wong-Staal, an American hero AND daughter of China. 1st to clone HIV, leading to treatments saving lives. Proof the world can work together.❤️

#Steelers pass-rusher Bud Dupree has filed a grievance with hopes that he’ll be paid as a defensive end rather than a LB, I’m told. Similar to Shaq Barrett. While there is still some time to work something out, the sides are not close on a deal.

The #Eagles have disciplined DeSean Jackson for conduct detrimental to the team. https://t.co/uxoh4jNlfo

NFL officials are expected to wear some kind of face covering and gloves -- and potentially could use handheld electronic whistles in 2020, NFLRA executive director Scott Green tells me. More changes to how football could look (and sound?) amidst COVID-19.

Age (average is 53) and/or medical history puts some officials in higher-risk categories. And they're in close contact with players/coaches. Testing is a huge issue, Green said; officials want it twice a week (once in home city, once in game city). Opt-out also being negotiated. https://t.co/FFt8CWOb8f

#Bucs pass-rusher Shaq Barrett is signing his franchise tender and has filed his grievance that he should be tagged as a DE nor LB, per @RosenhausSports.

Members of the NFL Management Council Executive Committee and NFLPA Executive Committee have a call scheduled Monday to continue working through outstanding issues -- testing protocols, report dates, opt-outs, compensation, etc. -- before players return to work, per source.

Mike Vrabel on Derrick Henry's contract status ahead of July 15 deadline: "Getting deals done is about being patient, hopefully keeping them private and confidential"

Excited to share this short film. I hope it’s relatable and can bring a smile to some people during these crazy times. I’m no colorist or editor but this was a good way to work on those weaknesses. #Quarantime https://t.co/VFlMDlIbip

This hits waaay too close to home. Nice work by writer / director / #Jaguars receiver Chris Conley. https://t.co/3hWVPbK9RL

While the joint NFL-NFLPA medical committee has worked together for months to develop various protocols, a union source says the game-day protocols sent to clubs last night -- including the ban on postgame jersey swaps -- have not yet been agreed to. “Still a work in progress.”

Before he teed off at the @ACChampionship, I told #Titans coach Mike Vrabel not to split his pants like buddy Tom Brady. Vrabel: "I went up a size." @nflnetwork
