The Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans have both informed their rookies that training camp will begin on schedule, according to NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport.
As Pelissero notes, the team has the right to instruct players to report under the current CBA, despite the NFL and NFLPA not yet having an agreement in place on testing and safety protocol, including potential opt-outs.
The two sides are also working to try and reach an agreement regarding financial impacts of lost revenue.
Talks will continue between the NFL and NFLPA, and the owners will have a meeting on Friday to try and come up with answers to the many questions surrounding the beginning of training camp and the NFL season.
Should it happen, this will be the first time the Chiefs have training camp in Kansas City since 1990.
