The NFL and Players Association are set to meet Friday afternoon in an attempt to work out the final details of proceeding with 2020 training camps and the regular season. Ahead of the meeting, both sides met respectively in order to prepare for what may be their most important negotiation before training camps are set to begin.

As reported this morning, the NFL was willing to compromise on the structure of lost revenue from the 2020 season in regards to affecting the salary cap in the future. It has been reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero that the NFL may be dropping the request to change the 2020 salary cap while raising the minimum salary cap for 2021.

The minimum salary cap is becoming an issue because of uncertainty of the NFL to be able to finish the 2020 season. Even with lost revenue due to ticket sales, the NFL has approved additional sponsorships on tarps covering the first several rows of seats in each stadium. While some financials could keep the NFL more on track for what they anticipated for the coming year, the ultimate gauge for financial stability comes in playing every game throughout the season.
