NFL To Restrict Players Postgame Interaction

Friday, July 10, 2020

NFL teams will be prohibited from postgame interactions within 6 feet of each other, which means players won't be allowed to exchange jerseys after games as part of the guidelines to help limit the spread of the coronavirus.

The restrictions are outlined in the gameday protocols finalized by the league and NFL Players Association.

Several players criticized the league banning jersey exchanges.

San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman wrote on Twitter: ''This is a perfect example of NFL thinking in a nutshell. Players can go engage in a full contact game and do it safely. However, it is deemed unsafe for them to exchange jerseys after said game.''

Hosuton Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson called it ''silly'' and asked, ''Why are they letting us play at all?''

The league and the players' union still haven't agreed on testing and screening protocols.
