Not sure where this really fits, unless I'm missing a thread, but a group of Patriot players released statement that they will not be participating in the voluntary workouts that start April 19.
Patriots players say "many of us" won't participate in voluntary workouts - ProFootballTalk (nbcsports.com)“In solidarity with other players across the NFL and in the interest of our health and safety, many of us at the New England Patriots will be exercising our right to not attend voluntary workouts this offseason,” the statement reads. “The NFL has yet to agree to the full details of a plan for players despite the fact we are a few short days away from the start of voluntary workouts. The threat of COVID-19 is still serious in our community and across the country, and we think it is safer for everyone if we choose to workout on our own. While we understand that some players will need to go for various reasons and some safety measures have been put in place, we also know that NFL players have a choice which our union bargained for.
